We’ve been talking a lot about “joining Jesus” on his mission this year because that’s a handy way to talk about being a disciple (and it’s also the title of a good book). But when we talk about “joining” we’re not just talking about getting a membership card. Jesus says that he is the “Bread of Life”. And to people who came to him looking for earthly gifts, or for good works to do, or for a list of things to believe, Jesus insisted that belief in him was even more fundamental than all of those. Jesus is the bread, the source of life, the root from which all of those things grow.
- John 6:25 - 59
