Nativity Countdown #18
Here's the simple explanation from last year's Friend:
Jesus Christ called Himself the “bread of life.” He said, “He that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst” (John 6:35). Jesus wasn’t talking about food to eat. He meant that if you believe in Him and feast on His word, you will be filled with His love. In Hebrew, means “house of bread.” What a perfect meaning for the place where the Savior was born.
I agree, and that's one reason why I like giving bread as a neighbor gift for Christmas. I appreciate the symbolism involved, even if no one else understands. More importantly, I am grateful for the Bread of Life.
Here are some of the recipes we like to use for our neighbor gifts:
Poppy Seed Bread
Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Loaf
Easy Banana Bread
Triple Chocolate Banana Bread
