Food. The sustenance of mankind. We all have our favorites. I love crab and sushi. I like chocolate, fish, chicken, pistachios, ice cream, well you get the idea. When it comes to food I’ve always been an adventurer willing to try different types of food. I’ve even had gator tail and frog legs. (And yes, frog legs really do taste like chicken!) As a result my son is always willing to try new foods. Like me, we both enjoy a variety of foods. Now my husband, while he is willing to try new foods, he is more inclined to stick with the basics. You know, the meat and potatoes kind of guy. Definitely not a fan of sushi! Nothing wrong with that and I don’t hold it against him. 🙂 It just gives me something to tease him about. And he’s a good sport about it too.
We all need to eat. Just as we need food for our physical bodies we also need food for our soul.
1 Peter 2:2-3 says as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
In John 16:12 Jesus says I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
The good news is as we study the Word of God and let it sink into the depths of our inner man, we will grow.
In John 16:13 Jesus goes on to say However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
The Holy Spirit is like a chef, waiting to feed us his masterpiece dinner, to help us grow spiritually. The food He feeds us is filled with nourishment that is good for us.
I pray the Lord will bless your day in a special way!
