As a kid I used to love peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches, they were some of my favorite things to eat. However nutritionally speaking there is just not much there.
If all I ever ate was peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches, I’d be malnourished and sick. I’m afraid that for most of us our spiritual diet contains more marshmallow fluff than real meat, and so the body of Christ is malnourished and in some places down right diseased.
What we need is real spiritual nutrition. An this passage in John show’s us where we can get it.
” I live because of the living Father who sent me; in the same way, anyone who feeds on me will live because of me.”
The source of life for Jesus was found in the Father. If Jesus needed a source of life here on earth then I think that it’s safe to say we need one too. Jesus tells us our source of life, it’s found in what we eat. If Jesus is our daily bread then we have all we need. If He isn’t then we will become what we eat.
To be better nourished spiritually we need a real living relationship with Jesus Christ, and we have got to get in His presence through prayer, and a daily habit of reading His Word. That is the only place we can find nourishment and healing.
The times we live in are bad and getting worse! And only those with a daily time with Jesus will be strong enough to stand.
“The Bread of God when eaten daily, produces a quality of life that Jesus Christ Himself enjoyed.”
