Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. He calls Himself the Bread of Life. He says His flesh is real food.
Food is our sustenance and satisfaction, our delight and signal of relationship. Food is both cause for celebration and our way of celebrating anything and everything.
Jesus—the Word of God, recorded for us in the Bible—is all of this for our souls and more.
So what does the Word of God say His food is? What, for Jesus, is sustenance, satisfaction, delight, relationship, and cause for celebration?
The Father's word—the Father's will and work.
In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat." ... Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
~ John 4:31,34 (NKJV)
Our Father in Heaven, please make Your will as food for us. By Your Holy Spirit, please make Your will not only our food, but our continual cause for celebration.
