We all know the importance of eating healthy. Our physical body requires food and water for nourishment to survive. We as adults have a choice as to what type of food we put into our bodies and that choice typically shows on our bodies. The healthier we eat the healthier we look and feel on the outside. The same is true with your spiritual body. What you eat and drink spiritually is more important than what you eat and drink physically.
John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
There are a lot of Christians who are starving to death spiritually. They get so busy that instead of feeding on the Word of God they begin to eat the junk food of the world. We have become a society of convenience and the world is ready and willing to force feed you the junk food of the world. Just like our physical bodies what you put in shows on the outside. If you wonder why you can’t speak the Word of God then maybe you need to look at how much of the Word are you putting into your body. Are you truly feeding on the Word of God?
How many times do we read the Word because it is what we are supposed to do? We pat ourselves on the back because we read a verse or two or did a quick devotional and an hour later we can’t tell you what we read. Why? Because we didn’t truly eat or absorb anything we simply did it as part of our daily routine. I have been guilty of reading the Word and my mind is full of other things that I’ve got to do. I have had to ask for forgiveness for this many times because I wasn’t truly feeding on the Word I was merely reading it. There is a big difference between reading the Word and feeding on the Word. When you feed on it you absorb everything in that Word. You meditate on it, you ponder it, and you pray on it to get everything out of it that God has for you. We sometimes get so preoccupied with everything else going on in our lives that we forget the most important thing in our lives, God. I hear people all the time saying they are addicted to sugar or caffeine but I never hear anyone say they are addicted to the Word. We should crave the Word of God like we do sugar or caffeine.
You can’t speak the Word if you don’t know the Word and you can’t know the Word if you don’t spend time digesting the Word. The Bible tells us to seek Him and the only way to seek Him is in His Word. You want to know what Jesus would do His Word tells you what He would do.
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.
We all know people that are spiritually solid and these are typically the people we go to when we are in trouble, scared, or need advice. Sometimes just being around these people you feel a calmness and a sense of security. That is because they have the true peace of God. They have not only read that He is the God of peace but they have digested it and when you digest something it becomes a part of you.
We have all heard the saying ” You are What you eat.” So what are you eating today?
