John 6:35

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

What was Jesus saying to His audience and all who have a need for spiritual food? What Jesus was saying to His audience is that just as man needs physical bread and water to sustain ones physical life spiritual bread and water is a necessity for spiritual survival and Jesus is the spiritual sustainer. Also Jesus' statement of Him being the bread of life further authenticates that He is the incarnated Christ sent from God the Father to provide the way back to our heavenly Father.
Jesus reminded His Jewish audience of their forefathers who ate manna from heaven and is now dead (v 49), but all who eat of His body shall live forever. Why simply because He is the "Bread of life" (v 48).
The question becomes, How do we eat and drink of this spiritual food? Verse 54 provides the answer, which is by believing in Jesus Christ and accepting Him as our personal Savior and sharing in the redemptive benefits of Christ's death on the cross (Romans 3:24-25; 1 John 1:7) and all believers will be raised with Him in the end. It is noteworthy to say that all believers remain in fellowship with Christ and His word through daily Bible reading as it is the written Word of God (1:1-5); therefore, believers eat of His flesh through the written Word of God and obeying His Word (v 63).
It is worth mentioning that we are saved by God's grace and the Holy Spirit's regenerating power when we first hear God's Word and adhere to the Word. Our salvation continues through our reading, obeying and absorbing the Word's truth in our hearts (1Timothy 4:13-16; James 1:21).
Jesus the bread of life, what a spiritual food provider!
