Oh. My. Deliciousness!!! The aroma is pretty intoxicating as well!
However, there is a bread much better than this.
Jesus, the Bread of life.
Teaching a crowd, Jesus said,
“The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
“Yes, I am the bread of life!”
“For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”
I have always appreciated and enjoyed a good, crusty bread, but I am humbled and grateful for Jesus. He gave His life so I may have eternal life.
