In John 4:31-34 the disciples reach out to Jesus to eat as He probably hadn’t eaten in days and been out praying. Jesus replies to them, “Don’t worry about me. I have eaten a meal you don’t know about. John 4:32 (TPT)” Confused the disciples begin to wonder if someone has brought Him food. They failed to understand that Jesus was talking about spiritual food and seeking God. To make it clear Jesus replies, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. (ESV)” If, only we could all say that our nourishment comes from spiritual food given to us by God! Jesus desires for all of us to come to Him like children and depend on Him as the source for strength. True, fulfillment in life comes from knowing God, not food, no material possession can truly satisfy us like the “bread of life (John 6:35)” which is Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior who came into the world to save all of us. May, we all continue to grown in faith and trust Him. Amen.
