Food. Why do we need it? Just what does it do for us?
Those were questions I asked myself when I read John 4:34Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.
Let’s see. Food to the body is fuel. It builds cells which build tissue, muscles, organs, and our whole body system. We must have food for the body to function; without it, our bodies die. Rather important, huh?
But that’s not all. I say food is for pleasure too. How great is to sit around a table with people you love and respect sharing bowls of chili, salad, and slices of upside-down apple pie? It’s pretty great that’s what it is! Holy fun you could say. 🙂 Food. Important stuff.
My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.
How’s that verse strike you now?
To JESUS, doing the will of The Father was LIFE to Him. Doing the will of the Father fueled Him. It gave Him energy. It kept Him going. He LIVED to do the will of The Father. And He ENJOYED doing the will of The Father. It gave Him pleasure. It fed His Emotions, it fed ALL of Him to do the will of The Father.
That’s something to ‘chew’ on, isn’t it?
Is there anything that crosses our senses that He has not designed to tell us He loves us and that we need Him?
Nope! Don’t think there is! Do you?
Thank You, FATHER. And HOLY SPIRIT, will You take this and light it up for our Readers? Will You speak to hearts and encourage and empower us to be like JESUS? Desiring to do the will of The Father more than anything else? I invite You to; for them and for me. Amen and amen in JESUS’ name.
Holy hugs, Kathie
