11-15-2020 “GOD’S DAILY BREAD!” part2 Matthew 6:11

This week Bro. Leo starts us off with prayer requests for those in our Church family and others in our community who have contracted the coronavirus, as well as Dr. Joe Hall who passed away this week from the coronavirus. Please join us in praying for these individuals and their families.

Bro. Leo continues our Biblical study of what Jesus was telling us when He prayed for “Daily Bread”.

Last week we learned that the Hebrews related the phrase “Daily Bread” to the manna their forefathers received daily from God for the 40 years they were wondering the wilderness and how the daily manna taught them to trust and obey God.

This week we learn that Jesus was actually teaching two types of “Daily Bread”, 1) our daily physical need for food, 2) our daily spiritual needs (John 6:49-51).

From the days of Moses forward the Rabbinical teachings taught that the Messiah would be Moses like, He would perform all the miracles that Moses performed (Duet.18:15, 18),. So, when Jesus fed the 5k using only five barley loaves, and two small fishes the Hebrews recognized Jesus as the Messiah (John 6:9-15).

At this point Jesus introduces them to their daily spiritual need, Himself, and how their spiritual needs were greater than their physical needs (John 6:26-33, 47-54). In Matt.4:1-4 puts His spiritual needs ahead of His physical needs when Satan tempts Him in the wilderness.

When we pray for our “Daily Bread” we are praying for our physical needs, but more importantly we should be praying for our spiritual needs (Psa.34:8, Psa.42:1-2,8, Psa.63:1-8).

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Joh 6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
Joh 6:13 Therefore 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.
Joh 6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

Deu 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

Deu 8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
Deu 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
