“Give us today our daily bread”
Meditation 5: The “Bread” is Christ
Though certainly material and physical, this pray is also a reflection of our need for Jesus Christ. He is the true bread of life (John 6:35, 48). He is the new manna that God gives us daily to satisfy our eternal life (John 6:30-33, 49-51).
God has promised physical provision until He calls us home to Him. But He has also given a double portion in Christ who is the source of eternal life and our assurance that we will rest with Christ in an eternal Sabbath (Heb 4:9-11).
