Part of the John's gospel series, preached at a IBCP's Service service
Jesus declared Himself to ve the Bread of life. What sort of food can Jesus give us when we seek Him? How is it satisfying from other kinds of food? How is He better than our other relationships, tasty food or pleasures? How is it that even if we have everything, we feel emptiness inside without Jesus, which applies even to those who do not believe in Him? In this sermon, pastor Gareth addresses the concept of 'instant culture' in which we live today.
Is salvation a matter of what we know or who do we know? But how do we 'eat' the Bread of Life? How is all this related to the Athanasian Creed from the 6th century?

12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 13Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. (KJV)
10And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison. (KJV)
10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (KJV)
3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (KJV)
