1 Kings 19:4-8; Psalm 34: 2-9; Ephesians 4:30-5:2; John 6:41-51

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • Has God’s call for your life ever seemed too much to handle? What has given you strength when you felt most depleted?
  • How do you imitate God in your daily life? In what ways it is easy for you to imitate God and in what ways is it difficult for you?
  • Jesus doesn’t just send us bread to nourish us. He IS the bread that gives us life. How does God feed you day by day?
  • We have heard about different types of ways that Jesus is bread for us over the last weeks. What are your reflections on this image over the course of the weeks, as a whole? How does this image help you understand Jesus more?
