He came to preach, heal, and make disciples; then the Bread of Life was broken for our sin.
Jesus told us…
to love God first with everything that we are, love others as much as we love ourselves, and make disciples.
If we love Him first, telling others of His goodness will be a natural response.
demonstrating to others the power of the resurrection of Jesus in our own lives.
Timothy was a disciple, or student, to Paul, but first they were friends. Paul guided him in how to lead others in the way of Truth.
No matter where we are in our journey, we are surrounded by Pauls and Timothies…
friends to glean from, and ones for the pouring forth… for the breaking of Bread.
We bless with words, but more with actions. After all, isn’t the way we live more effectual than what we say? Yes. We are blessed to be the blessing.
As we break bread…and apportion Truth, and our lives display how we are being changed by it, our Timothies and Pauls taste and experience with us that the Lord is good.
Together we savor His goodness.
As we partake of the Bread that was broken for us, we hunger for others to feast from the same table.
