  • A PICTURE OF THE GOSPEL

JESUS – REDEMPTION


I AM

He is God. He came to make all things new. He fulfills the OT promises.

  • Manna – Jesus

  • Moses – Jesus (True Redeemer)

  • Temple – Jesus (where God meets man)

  • Jacob’s ladder – Jesus (true stairway to heaven)

  • Bronze serpent – Jesus (lifted up on the cross)

The Bread of life

  • Just feet the 5000

  • Bread is necessary for life

  • Daily need (Give us our daily bread. Matt 6)

  • He is signifying a spiritual bread

  • COMPLETE SATISFACTION

  • The HEART of the issue. Spiritual need

  • Lost, Separated. Sin

  • Matt. 4:4Man shall not live on bread alone, but every word that comes from the mouth of God.

MAN – SEPARATION


Whoever comes to me… Believes in me


Repentance and Faith

  • Whoever comes to me

    • Shall never hunger

  • Whoever believes

    • Shall never thirst


GOD – RESTORATION

Because all that the Father gives me will come to me.

  • The work of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel

Whoever comes to me I will never cast out

  • Adopted into the family of God.

  • Loving, Nourishing, Cherishing.

This is God’s Will (plan)

  • IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED!

I should lose nothing that He has given

  • Hold, Protect

    • Security and Perseverance

Raise it up on the last day

  • Keeping the End in mind.

    • Life in the midst of death

v. 40 – For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
