HAVE YOU EATEN A MEAL THAT WAS SATISFYING TO YOUR SOUL TODAY?

HAVE YOU EATEN A MEAL THAT WAS SATISFYING TO YOUR SOUL TODAY?   

Mature Couple Eating Dinner

Here is how Jesus answers this question; Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. (John 4:34 ESV)

Each day we participate in eaten of the many different foods that are satisfying to our taste buds.  We do this in a way to build our physical strength that provides nourishment to our souls.  This is a very good thing, but in addition to the physical foods we eat we also need to take in our daily rations of spiritual foods.  When we decide to skip our spiritual meals, we find our minds not properly responding to our needs in our daily lives and we wonder why we are not able to achieve the goals that we have set for ourselves, or why we are feeling depress and living in lack with everything tossing and turning upside down.  This was the case of the Samaritan woman that met Jesus at the well.  Her life had been in turmoil and Jesus provided her with a spiritual meal that completely changed her life at that very moment.

The Disciples had left Jesus at the well and gone into town to buy some food.  When they returned with all the fresh food they had purchased at the local market, they urged Jesus to eat some of what they had just purchased, but Jesus response was baffling to them.  He said, “I have food you don’t know about.”  The disciples thought he was talking about physical food; instead, Jesus was saying that he was spiritually satisfied by having shared the Good News with the Samaritan woman.

This statement of having food you don’t know nothing about clearly shows us that Jesus lived to please his Father and in so doing found spiritual nourishment.  Doing the will of God meant that Jesus submitted himself to the Father’s plan and enjoyed carrying out his Father’s desires.  Satisfying the Father gave Jesus true satisfaction.  Finishing God’s work speaks of completing the task—all the way from sowing the seed to reaping the harvest.

Jesus clearly enjoyed partaking of all the Spiritual Foods God had provided for him.  When we learn that daily we must partake of our spiritual foods as a way of satisfying not only our physical needs, but a way to meet the spiritual needs of our families, our churches, our communities and our country.  When we begin to look out for our brothers and sisters as Jesus taught us in this lesson by looking out after the needs of the Samaritan woman we will then be doing the will of God, and we too can begin to enjoy the spiritual foods that others know nothing about.  What do you think?

    “I have food you don’t know about” is a powerful statement. Sometime we get so caught up with the physical that we forget the spiritual.

    I thank you very much for sharing, Pastor. I pray God will continue to bless you as you continue to bless others.
