Reflections from the Youth Mission Trip

Passage: Exodus 16:2-4, 9-15, Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-16, John 6:24-35

[No Sermon Audio]

Bread is a gift of God—both the ordinary bread baked from grain-ground-into-flour and the miraculous bread of manna in the wilderness. Jesus tells us that there is yet another bread from God, bread that nourishes us to eternal life—Himself, the Bread of Life come down from heaven. We encounter Him at the altar, broken for us and our salvation. We also encounter him in those desolate places where He vows to sustain us with His presence, enabling us to feed the world with His grace and mercy.
