JESUS: Bread, Gift, Name & Glory

First, the Lord Jesus is Bread without price offered freely, the Bread that truly does satisfy, for He is “the Bread of life [and] he who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (Jn. 6:35). Source

The Son of God Himself entered the flow of history “when the fullness of the time had come” (vs. 4), where He remains to this day – God’s amazing and singular gift to mankind. We have reasons for being abundantly thankful: for our creation, our preservation in life, and for the multitude of blessings which He daily bestows upon us. Yet, nothing can compare with the Gift Himself, the Lord Jesus Christ – the Gift of Great Wonder, the ineffable, Personal, Self-giving God come from Above, “the Orient on High.” Given and received, Christ, the Gift Who changes each person who embraces Him as God and King. The change He makes is glorious, illuminating, perfecting, elevating, and life-giving in every respect. What more can be said? Let us be joyful and praise Him in His glory! Source

Glorious name, gracious name, name of love and of power! Through you sins are forgiven, through you enemies are vanquished, through you the sick are freed from their illness, through you those suffering in trials are made strong and cheerful. You bring honor to those who believe, you teach those who preach, you give strength to the toiler, you sustain the weary.

— St Bernardine of Siena, d. 1444

That last, thanks to FWD from RC pal, Tim.
