I know, it’s probably obvious, but I LOVE to eat. Steak – rare. Shrimp – grilled. Fish – Shore-lunch Cajun battered. Pork Chops – thick and grilled to juicy pink perfection. Bacon – with everything!
Food can easily define us. How much we eat can determine the description of us.
The words of Jesus to His disciples give us something to gnaw on.
John 4:32-34 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.”
Here’s a simple yet profound thought for today –
Are we so defined by feasting on the food of the Father’s will that we are described by the visible affects of constantly doing His work?
I have been gnawing on that thought for days, and I have discovered that there are too many worldly foods – recreation, financial security, relationships, personal liberties, etc. – that define me because I pursue eating them consistently.
May our lives be defined not by feeding on the world, but by feeding on the will of the Father and accomplishing His work.
