The Lord Jesus is the beautiful fulfilment of the type seen in the manna in the wilderness (Ex. 16).
It came from heaven—He came from heaven (1 Cor.15:47).
It was small—He humbled Himself (Phil. 2:8).
It was round—He is the eternal Son of God (Rev. 1:8).
It was white—He is righteous (1 John 3:5).
It was sweet—”Taste and see that the Lord is good” (Ps. 34:8).
It had to be eaten—Christ must be received by faith (John 1:12-13).
It was sufficient for all—Christ is our sufficiency (2 Cor. 3:5).
Truly, the Lord Jesus is manna become Man! —Rex Trogdon
It makes the wounded spirit whole, and calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna to the hungry soul, and to the weary rest. —John Newton
