THIS FAREWELL ADMONITION FROM THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS NOT ONLY MEANT FOR THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH IN EPHESUS, BUT ALSO TO US WHO ARE IN CHRIST. (Act 20:32) “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the Word of His Grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD; IT WAS GIVEN BY THE INSPIRATION OF GOD. HOWEVER, THE PARTICULAR “WORD OF GOD” INTENDED FOR US WHO ARE IN CHRIST IS THE “WORD OF HISGRACE”.
THE “WORD OF HIS GRACE” IS ALL ABOUT JESUS THE “BREAD OF LIFE”. HE IS THE “MANNA FROM HEAVEN”; THE SPIRITUAL FOOD WE CHRISTIANS MUST FEED ON IN ORDER TO BEAR MUCH FRUIT AND BUILD OUR FAITH UP. (John 6:51) “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”
(John 6:56) “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.”
THE OLD TESTAMENT IS FULL OF “HIDDEN MANNA”; THESE ARE DIVINELY ORCHESTRATED TYPOLOGIES ABOUT CHRIST. IN FACT, CHRIST AFTER HIS RESURRECTION, TOOK TIME TO EXPLAIN WITH TWO OF HIS FOLLOWERS
WHAT WAS SAID IN ALL THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES CONCERNING HIMSELF. (Luke 24:27) “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.”
IT IS THEREFORE A MUST FOR US WHO ARE IN CHRIST TO FEED ON CHRIST’S LOVE, HIS GRACE, HIS NEW COVENANT, HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS AND HIS GOSPEL OF GRACE.
CHRIST IS NOT THE BREAD OF LIFE FOR NOTHING!

I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
