In John 6:22–40, we see the first "I AM" statement, when Jesus declares, "I am the bread of life." Pastor Brian reminds us that all people have a void in their lives that can only be filled by Christ. We have a spiritual need that is like the physical need we call hunger. Bread, a staple of the ancient Hebrews, was the most essential of foods. But in order for bread to nourish, it must be eaten. The same goes for our spiritual walk—we must embrace Him in order to be satisfied.
