Food is necessary for growth, health, and good condition. There are benefits in eating more protein foods. There are benefits in eating natural foods, fruits, vegetables, meat , fish. There are plenty enough of books and recipes written for the consumer to read today. To sum it up, our body need the nourishment it gets from eating food. But, what about your Spirit ?…..Yes! that’s right. What about your spirit?. It need to be fed. Here is the reason why:
- You are a spirit
- You have a soul
- And you live in a body
It is written, man do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4
The reason why this is so important for us to know is because of this fact. The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words that are spoken by Jesus are spirit and life.
If you are not reading and meditating on the Word of God regularly, then your spirit will be malnourished. You will become weak in the spirit and this can make it easier for satan attacks in your life. i.e. When Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. He had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward was hungry. His body became weak and he became a target for satan’s attack to deceive him by temptations that goes against the knowledge of God the Father. So if Jesus was tempted, and he is the Son of God, you know we will be.
The Weapon of God in Fighting the Attack from Devil is His Word. Jesus told satan, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” Matthew 4:4
We, mankind need spiritual food that is found in the Word of God ( HOLY BIBLE ).
Bread for our spirit is Christ Jesus, the Bread of Life……….
Jesus is saying to us now ” I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
Stop negelecting your spirit…..the body gets it’s share of food. Start now, feed your spirit with The Word of God.
