Jno. 6, 32-35

1.  Jesus had fed the people, now meets their questions and objections.  They thought Moses gave the Manna, and want Christ’s sign.  God now giveth them the true Bread.

2.  All men are in need–they perish with hunger.

3.  Man’s help must come from heaven; this world cannot give it.  His wants are spiritual.  His soul seeks reviving and vitalizing.  What does this has the preeminent claim upon him.

4.  Jesus was the bread of life.  He came from above, brought life, pardon, peace, and sustaining grace.  These nourish the soul and preserve it unto life eternal–just what man needs.

By faith he is received.  Will you find in him your all?  He is life and health and peace.
