I’ve traveled all over the world and tried many different foods over the years. While some international delicacies are very good, I wouldn’t recommend eating others. A delicacy known as satay is served in Southeast Asian countries such as the Philippines and Thailand. This dish is similar to American kabobs. Some of the meats used for this delicacy are eel, squid, horse, water buffalo, rabbit, turtle, crocodile, and snake. Are you getting hungry?
Most of us would have a hard time stomaching these foods, just as many natives of Southeast Asia have a hard time with some of the popular foods in the United States. But there’s a universal food that everybody likes, and that’s bread. As long as people have bread, they can survive.
I want to tell you about a universal message that nobody can live without—it’s the gospel. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Christ is the Bread of Life. That is good news for a world dying of spiritual hunger.
Have you shared this life-saving truth with anyone lately? You may think to yourself, It’s no use. My neighbor doesn’t care about religion. He’ll close the door in my face. Maybe you’ll have to get him hungry before he is ready to take a bite. Watch and pray for the right opportunity to share the loaf of Christ.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is news, good news: the best and most important news that any human being ever hears. — Unknown Author
