He Gives Us Himself

Chapters 6 and 7 of John present Jesus as "The Bread of Life" and "The Giver of Rivers of Living Water."  He is the bread that has come down from Heaven, the bread that truly satisfies, and He is the one who declares, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."

The bread that Jesus offered was His own body, broken for our sins, and the living water that He promises will flow from the hearts of those who believe and come thirsting, is the indwelling, overflowing Holy Spirit!  He gives us Himself!  He gives us Himself, to satisfy our hunger for righteousness, and He gives us His Holy Spirit, to satisfy our spiritual thirst for communion with Him.  What more could we ever ask for?
