Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen. (Isaiah 28:28)
Today’s Morsel: I love bread. I think it’s my downfall. I have been in many countries and no matter the country, it seems that people just know how to cook bread. To make bread, the corn has to go through a process of being beaten and bruised to be turned into flour or corn meal for the making of the bread. In olden times, it was smashed with a rock or rolled over with a huge stone pulled by an ox or mule to crush it. Isaiah said that bread corn is bruised. Referring to Jesus Christ, who is the bread of life, he said: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). Jesus told the people, “This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” (John 6:50-51). He’s been bruised for you. So you might as well eat and live.
Sing: "Come and dine," the Master calleth, “Come and dine!” You may feast all Jesus' table all the time. He who fed the multitude, turned the water into wine, to the hungry calleth now, “Come and dine!”
