Essentials to Survive


We need bread and water to survive
Without both, we eventually will die
God formed our bodies to be that way
When He created man on the sixth day

Yet so many starve from malnutrition
Some find help through an institution
Shelters for the homeless lend a hand
But more are needed across our land

Others face hunger of a spiritual kind
Searching endlessly for peace of mind
Often not knowing which way to turn
They stray down the path of no return

Jesus offers living water and bread
Through the Spirit we become fed
Spiritual needs of hunger and thirst
Are met by placing faith in Him first

This important stage of our life journey
Leads us to the final place of eternity
Which choice we freely decide to make
Determines the course our life will take

John 6:35 (NIV)
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life.
He who comes to me will never go hungry, and
he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
