August is National Sandwich Month so grab some bread, fixin’s, chips and pickles and enjoy.
While you are munching on your delectable goody, ponder the thing that holds all that grub together. Two pieces of bread.
Jesus told His disciples that He was the Bread of life (John 6:35). He was trying to get them to understand that feeding on Him would sustain them more than physical food. When we eat, we eventually get hungry again. But feeding on Jesus satisfies in a way that makes you full, yet you want more. Not because you are hungry again, but because it is so good.
Jesus is the Bread that holds us together. When life seems to be falling apart, we can put ourselves inside the Bread of life for a spiritual sandwich. He is on all sides of us keeping all the pieces in perfect order.
So,what’s your favorite sandwich? Mine is a bacon, lettuce, and tomato with crispy bacon, romaine lettuce, and the reddest, ripest tomato I can find. Sometimes a side of avocado goes along too.
Join in and share your favorites.
