August 4–Soul Food…You Are What You Eat

Meanwhile Jesus’ disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.”

But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”

Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”

My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.” John 4:31-34

What’s your SOUL food source?

Where am I…where are you getting the deepest nourishment for our SOULS? Where do we find the source of our energy? Our strength? Our purpose?

Jesus got His soul food from His Father…from knowing and doing His Father’s will. Here, in intimate knowledge of His Father’s will and in loving obedience to it, Jesus received His energy, His strength, His purpose for ALL He was called to do in life.

Since we as God’s children are to become more and more like Jesus, I’m thinking we need to be sure we go to, and receive from, the same SOUL food source as Jesus—knowing and doing our Heavenly Father’s will! After all, you’ve heard the saying, “You are what you eat!” 

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
