Jan 18 Devotion: Don’t Forget the Bread!

Matt. 16:1-6– The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

2  He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

5 ¶ And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

  1. of Life!

John 6:47-51– Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Too many times we are like the disciples. We are so involved in ministry, church, or with life itself that we forget to partake of the very nourishment our soul needs to sustain us so we can share with others! We fail to embrace the intimacy available with Jesus on a personal basis and we lack a steady diet of the scriptures. May we this day consider our true privileges in being saved and by all means, don’t forget the bread! Keep looking up!
