What You’re Eating or What’s Eating You!
Did you know God’s Words says a righteous person eats to live and a wicked person lives to eat? (Isaiah 22:13) Jesus is the Bread that came down from Heaven to give us eternal life. The food we eat daily cannot give us this. Jesus declared whoever believed in Him would never die because they spiritually ate the Bread from Heaven. He said that by eating of the Bread from Heaven one time we would receive eternal life through faith that was delivered unto the Saints (every believer is a Saint).
The Word of God tells us “The life is more than food”. (Luke 12:23) What life? We all are grateful to be alive. God has created each one of us unique. No one else is like you. You have your own personality. Is this the life Jesus is speaking of?
James 4: 14 Says our lives are like a vapor that appears for a while, then vanishes away! Death is the enemy of the human race. When facing death some may be fearful while others are at Peace. Jesus said, “I Am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me will live, even if he dies.” (John 11: 25-26) This is the “Sure” Hope of the believer! “Where O death, is your Victory? Where, O death, is your Sting?” (1 Corinthians 15: 55 NIV) Through Faith in Jesus, the believer receives eternal, everlasting life, and a peace that passes all understanding, which is guarding their hearts and minds. “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest”. (MT 11: 28 NASB) Truly this IS the life better than the food!
My prayer is that those who do not have this life will read the Gospel, the Good News of their Salvation, repent of their sins, and come to Jesus. “Whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be Saved” (Romans 10:13) It is through faith that we eat the Bread from Heaven, Jesus.
