Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 19 – 25 March 2017
“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.'”
In order to survive, our bodies must be sustained with several needs. However, we are also capable of surviving in a period of time without these needs. For example, we can live for 2 months without food and when it comes to water, some have managed to survive for 2 weeks without it.
Spiritually, we also have needs. In John 6:35, Jesus declared to his disciples: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” This is not to say that whoever accepts Jesus will never go physically hungry or thirsty as this refers to spiritual hunger and thirst that results in sin and spiritual death. Just like our physical bodies, our souls will need constant refreshment which God can only give satisfaction.
As we constantly move on this race, it is important that we consider not only our physical but also our spiritual well-being. A good spiritual life is a treasure that is worth keeping as it transcends not only our world but also the eternity.
A healthy soul reflects on the mind and body.
