What did you eat today? Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, or something else? It is said we are what we eat and drink. It becomes what makes up our body. Did your food provide nourishment for your body and supply what the different cells need to function properly?
I’m not sure we’re ever really satisfied with our lives. We always seem to hunger and thirst. But the same is true spiritually. We are what we eat and drink spiritually. Jesus reminded us He is the bread of life. True bread. True drink. He would satisfy our hunger and thirst.
If we take Jesus into our lives like food and drink, we will have His everlasting life and He will live in us. Not us trying to be a Christian. It has nothing to do with our efforts. It is not a religious pursuit. It is not us endeavoring to please God. It is His life and power in us providing nourishment for our spiritual growth.
It is all of God. We need only to accept His life into our life, directly from Him. We receive it when we come to Jesus humbly, admitting that we are sinners and need His forgiveness and life in us.
Accept His life in you and begin to grow. Abide in Him. Like a branch of a vine gets its nourishment from the main vine, so we get our nourishment from Jesus. If we don’t, we will wither and possibly die spiritually.
Watch what you are feeding on and eat of the bread of life. Live!
