A Short Study of Exodus 16:15

“And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.” 
(Exodus 16:15)

When the LORD rained down manna (bread) from heaven for the murmuring people, they were amazed by it and grateful for it. It tasted of wafers dipped in honey; very sweet to them. But after 40 years, many grew tired of the manna, calling it light bread; and lusted after the delights of Egypt. The Lord Jesus Christ said: “I am the bread from Heaven.”

Jesus Christ is the sweet, amazing bread of God, bread of life, bread from Heaven. What a gift! What a feast of joy and gladness is the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the hungry, sin-sick soul. If anyone begins to lose their hunger for the gospel and is no longer amazed by God’s grace; if anyone grows tired of hearing Christ preached and looks for other things, the delights of this world, the religion of this world; that person will not enter God’s promised land. God is greatly offended, even angry, with those who have no love nor need for His Son . . . those who would rather have “leeks and onions” than Christ.
