It was not physical bread and water that Jesus was trying to teach about. He wanted the followers to understand the need for spiritual bread and water. It was Jesus who would fulfill that need to those who came to him.

36 “But I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37 “ All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.


God is pleased with you when you trust in Jesus. Imagine, the God of the Universe, is pleased to have you trust in him, just as a son or daughter, trusts in his father. Emanuel, Jesus, Messiah, GOD WTH US.

33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and a all these things will be added to you. “So do not a worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Ask and it will be given. Seek and ye shall find!

Through Jesus, he gives us Living Waters. Just like we need water to keep us alive, we need this spiritual living water, to live.

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God? Psalms 42:2 NASB

Comment from John Macarthur Study Bible:

† 4: 10 living water. The OT is the background for this term, which has important metaphorical significance. In Jer 2: 13 , Yahweh decries the disobedient Jews for rejecting Him, the “fountain of living waters.” The OT prophets looked forward to a time when “living waters will flow out of Jerusalem” ( Eze 47: 9 ; Zec 14: 8 ). The OT metaphor spoke of the knowledge of God and His grace which provides cleansing, spiritual life, and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit (cf. Is 1: 16– 18 ; 12: 3 ; 44: 3 ; Eze 36: 25– 27 ). John applies these themes to Jesus Christ as the living water which is symbolic of eternal life mediated by the Holy Spirit

Lord, may our hearts humbly bow before you, in persistent prayer. May we be alert, to the needs of others, so we might lift them up. Reveal yourself to us, through answered prayer, even though it may not be, what we wanted the outcome to be. May we always remember, that you care about us and love hearing our petitions.

Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;

Jesus gives life and sustains us, just as bread and water. The difference, is bread and water is temporary, but what Jesus gives, is for all of eternity. Thank you Jesus! May many come to know you this Easter season, as we celebrate your gift of life!

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
