“’My food,’ said Jesus, ‘is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.'” (John 4:34, NIV)

As we’ve been told before: We need to be careful of what we eat. Over time, what we consume eventually consumes us.

Jesus said that His “food” was: (1) To do the will of His Father; and (2) To finish His work.

What is it that energizes you? What is it that were you to have to do without, you would die? By definition, this is our “food.”

As followers of Jesus, we should have the exact motivation that He did. To hunger for anything else assures spiritual malnutrition and the risk of being consumed by unworthy ambitions.

In Matthew 6:33, Jesus tells us to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these [other] things [we so eagerly seek, including literal food] will be added [provided] to us.” (Note: Bracketed words are my amplifications.)  – Luther
