The Simple Bread

18 Jun

The Simple Bread…

Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem. Bethlehem comes from two Hebrew words. The first is “Beth” or “Beit” which means “house of,” and the second is “lehem” which means bread. He wasn’t born in Beth-sushi, or Beth-manicotti, or Beth-chicken-lo-mein, He was born in Bethlehem.

He was born in the house of bread. Jesus is the “Bread of Life.” Bread is not complicated; it is simple. It is man’s nature, even the nature of believers, to complicate what is simple.

We would rather have Jesus born in Beth-chicken-cordon-bleu than in Bethlehem. Men would rather get into the latest doctrine, teaching on the latest revival rather than the simple love of God.

We all tend to complicate our lives, our walks, our ministries and our faith–with all sorts of issues. God is simple. Jesus is simple and the Gospel is simple.

Come out of the complicated place you have been living and come back to the simplicity of your faith; your first love–the gospel–and His love for you. For Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the House of Bread. It is that simple.

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:35

We tend to always complicate our lives. Today, return to the simple love of God. He is the Bread of Life. Keep it simple in the simplicity of His love.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
