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.”
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.
