God Will Always Be The Bread (Luke 24:17-35)Tommy Boring, February 16, 2020
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When Moses led the slaved people of Egypt out into the wilderness they began to get mad at God because they felt as if they had everything they needed in Egypt. God still loved them and provided bread from Heaven, Manna. All they had to do is to collect it and do as they wish with it. It was sweet to taste just like God. If they gathered more than they could use then it would rot. There came a time when they began to get sick of the bread and would began to complain yet again. God once again loved them and gave them dove in abundance, but the bread didn’t stop.
Elijah seen things of miraculous that God had done but yet he sinned. God told him that his life would be required of him for his adulterous action. So, Elijah ran and ran thinking he would run away from his problems, God’s judgement. Unfortunately there are people like this today that will just sit and sulk in their self pity. The Bible says that he fell asleep and then something woke him up. An angel with water and bread that told him to get up and eat. He did just that and then went back to sleep. The angel once again made more bread and had water and woke him yet again. In our lives we have angels that make bread for us to keep us going. God always has our lunch-boxes packed and ready, all we have to do is grab it and eat. We eat this bread that he has preparers because He knows what strength we need for that days work.
Jesus had hundreds of followers one day and needed to feed them. All that was available was a small boy with a few fish and a couple of loaves of bread. In groups of 50 they were all sitting. Jesus broke the bread and blessed it and they began to distribute it. What was so special about the bread and fish, nothing but the person doing the blessing. Not only did everyone eat until they were filled but they took up the leftovers. The boy wasn’t the one that was special for bringing the bread and fish but the one that blessed the food. Be careful that you don’t honor the pastor for preaching when the one to be honored is the one that blessed the pastor with the message. The pastor is only the distributor.
In another story we see that in the upper room Jesus and His disciples were gathered. This is what we know as the last supper. He had plain, unleavened bread and broke it and told them to distribute it. He told them that it was his flesh that was about to be broken, whipped. We still to this day partake of this ordinance during communion.
In the scripture we read today we see 2 boys that have simply given up. Jesus slipped in and asked them why they were sad. They were sad because they thought that Jesus was dead and hope was lost. Jesus was going to leave for the night and they asked Him to stay. He came in began to break the bread. At that moment their eyes were opened and they knew He was alive! What they needed was a spiritual awaking to know that He was alive and well.
Has He broke the bread for you and your spiritual eyes been opened? Do you want to taste it but Satan is telling you no? Tell satan to leave you alone and come, take and eat! If you want the bread of life all you have to do is come and get it.

17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? 18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass therein these days? 19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. 25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. 29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. 30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? 33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
