Cause for Celebration

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.

  1. I have very recently been focusing on God's will in my life and have too often been left feeling uncertain and confused, though I know that God is not the author of confusion. Without doing a study, the Lord brought two verses to mind that I already knew but was not thinking of. He was so good to bring these to me!

    Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND. Then you will be able to test and approve what GOD'S WILL IS, His good pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12

    TEACH ME TO DO YOUR WILL for You are my God. May Your good spirit lead me on level ground.
    Psalm 143

    May He help me by allowing me to be guided and inspired by His word.

  2. Mary, the verses from Romans have become a cornerstone in my life. Do you remember when we memorized them together all those years ago? They were the first Bible verses I ever made it a point to memorize. I think of those verses very often, and you motivating me to learn them comes to mind almost every time. ♥
