"But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Mathew 4:4
IN JESUS TODAY!
The care and concern of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is certainly made more than obvious here. He is the Word, he is every Word that has proceeded out of the mouth of God, as it is written,
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us" John 1:1, 14
Jesus was given as our sacrifice so that we may live. God knew that we could not live by bread and water alone, so He provided what we needed to live, His only begotten Son, Jesus! Now we can live… but still many reject Jesus our God given Bread for life, our food! They reject what they need in order to live for eternity! Friends there are many other things that God could have given for us to eat that would not have tasted so good, for example, how would you like to eat ashes?
"For I have eaten ashes like bread." David said in Psalm 102:9 or how would you like to eat wind only? As we read,
"Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the East wind." Hosea 12:1
Instead of giving us food that is convenient only, or food that would only sustain our human bodies, God has given to us Pastors to feed us that are equipped with food that will enable us to be strong, wise, and live forever.
"And I will give you Pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding." Jeremiah 3:15
God doesn't want us to be ignorant, foolish, or an easy prey to the enemy. He has provided us with food that will give to us Eternal life with Him! Jesus (God's Word) is our food! Jesus’ body was broken for us and given for us so that we may live! Receive Jesus today!
