Jesus had a lot to say to the Religious Scholars of His day. He still does. Do we really think reading the Bible constantly saves us? Is that where our life comes from? Are we missing the forest for the trees?
Jesus is standing right in front of us. He is giving us life right now.
You have your heads in your Bibles constantly because you think you’ll find eternal life there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These Scriptures are all about me! And here I am, standing right before you, and you aren’t willing to receive from me the life you say you want. John 5:39-40 (The Message)
Jesus satisfies me like bread can never do. My soul hungers for right standing with our heavenly Father. He takes care of that for me so that I never have to hunger for right standing anymore. That longing is fulfilled completely. Taken care of. Done. It is finished.
It is all about Jesus. He is the real deal. He is everything I need to be right with our Father. It is ALL about Him. He is life. He satisfies your hunger.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35

There are some things we should know and be able to speak about. We should know life, how we get it and keep it, and how serving the Messiah makes it possible. There should be no pretending about that. We serve a “real” God. We have “real” life. Let’s talk about that. That is what we know. We are literate on that.
“They pretended to know it all, but were illiterate regarding life.” ~~Apostle Paul (Romans 1:21The Message)
