In the House of Bread' lay the 'Bread of Life'
In the ‘House of Bread’ lay the ‘Bread of Life’ By Robert Schaetzle
It’s been said, ‘Loving Christmas should not be our ultimate blessing, but loving Jesus because of Christmas.’ Without the birth of our Lord and Savior, there would be no Holy Day we’ve come to know as Christmas.
This event that happened is because of the Father’s love for mankind. Documented in John’s gospel where Jesus proclaimed, “It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has learned from the Father comes to Me. Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life.” [John 6:45-47]
Two Thousand years later, we worship ‘Emanuel’, the name given by God from Isaiah, translated “with us in God”. We love and worship Jesus because Christmas happened, and should be for no other purpose. God incarnate born in a stable, brings us salvation and hope, our true purpose for living. Christ, the ‘bread of life’ born in Bethlehem, the city called ‘house of bread’.
Abiding ‘in Him,’ brings transformation for living, greater value of purpose, which in part is to spread the truth of the gospel to a dying world, lost in sin.
This infant child wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger- who would be looked down upon by all of humanity- our King Eternal- our Lord Emanuel- our Redeemer. Jesus, the only one spoken of by God the Father: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” [Mathew 3:17b]
No other person walked on planet earth did God the Father speak with a voice from heaven for others to hear, the moment when John the Baptist baptized Jesus in the Jordan River.
What our faith is about today, would never have happened were it not for this ‘Bread of Life’ born in the city called ‘House of Bread’, we know today as Bethlehem.
Holy child of Bethlehem, descend on us we pray!
