Dear Friends,
 
Jesus quoted from the above passage in Deuteronomy in response to Satan's first temptation in the wilderness. "But Jesus answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” (Matthew 4:4, Luke 4:4). Jesus quoted this text to the devil in the midst of his forty-day fast to make the point that spiritual nourishment is incomparably more important than mere physical bread.  

Manna was a symbol of that spiritual nourishment. The Lord provided it for some forty years in the wilderness for the Israelites. Manna means "What is it?". The question remains unanswered to this day. Manna is said to be “white like coriander seed” with “a taste like honey cakes” (Exodus 16:31; Numbers 11:7). The text says it was a new thing and, one that appeared and disappeared miraculously (Exodus 16:21–27). Jesus is our manna from heaven. He appeared miraculously, and then after His resurrection from the dead, ascended miraculously to heaven as our Redeemer and Advocate.  Jesus is the spiritual nourishment we need every day in our lives.  Such spiritual nourishment is for now and includes the promise of eternal life.  

Our Family Service will be on Zoom and Facebook this Saturday/Sabbath at 11.15am. Dean Campbell will be speaking. There will also be a children's story.  Blessings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
