Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." (John 6:35)
In our gospel this week we are reminded once more that Jesus is the “Bread of Life.” Just as we need bread as a staple part of our diet so too we need to include Jesus as the staple part of our lives.
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1–2)
Paul encourages us to be imitators of God and to follow Jesus’ example and live a life of love. So powerful was Jesus’ love for us that he gave up his life that we might have life. In and in return he calls us to love one another in the same way.
So what does it mean for us to be imitators of his love?
