Your soul has an appetite [Sermon]

Jesus said that “unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you” (John 6:53). Yikes! That caused many disciples to turn back from following him.

But he was speaking metaphorically about the fact that he is the “bread of life” (verse 35). If we truly believe in him, we will feast on his love, truth and very presence; we will be nourished and sustained by him. This satisfies the deepest longings of our souls.

Yes, your soul has an appetite; but if you fill it with the wrong thing it will be eternally corroded. Fill it with the right thing, however, and it will be eternally contented.

In this sermon on John 6:25-71, I take us through the text, explain Jesus’ controversial and confusing words that he is the bread of life, and also highlight four wrong ways to satisfy our deepest spiritual longings.

As mentioned, you can access the extra “growing deeper” background content as a part of The Pulse Podcast with Matthew Ruttan (by clicking here) or by finding it wherever you subscribe to podcasts — iTunes (Apple Podcasts), Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher or TuneIn). It’s called “The bread of life, charges of cannibalism, and soul appetites.”
