Baking with Jess

One morning as Lilia prepared for work, her 4-year-old daughter Jess set to work too. The family had purchased a conveyor toaster, and the concept of cycling bread through the small countertop oven fascinated Jess. Minutes later, Lilia discovered a loaf and a half of toast piled on the counter. “I’m a very good baker!” Jess declared.

It’s no miracle that an inquisitive girl could turn bread into toast. But when Jesus transformed a boy’s five loaves and 2 fish into a meal for thousands, the crowd on the hillside recognized the miraculous nature of the event and wanted to make Him king.

Jesus’ kingdom, of course, is “not of this world”, and so He slipped away. When the crowd found Him the next day, Christ identified a flaw in their motives: “You seek me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled”. They mistakenly thought “King” Jesus would give them full stomachs and national freedom. But Jesus counseled them, “Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life”

An earthbound view will cause us to treat Jesus as a means to an end. He is, in fact, our Bread of Life.
