Our food

In John 4:24, Jesus said that His food was to do the will of Him who sent me and to accomplish His work.  What a great statement and this should be the desire of every disciples of Jesus Christ.  The will of God should be the foremost thing in our lives.  Jesus said it was His food.  It was the reason why He came.  His work and aim in life was to accomplish the work that God gave Him to do.  Now Jesus had a single focus through His life.  He had come to show the Father and then to die for the sins of mankind.  The will of God for each of us if different but there are some key components to the will of God.  They are as follows: We are to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love others as ourselves.  This is called the great commandment.  We show the Lord in our lives by the way we love ourselves and others.  The next one, is going into our world and preaching the goodnews of Jesus Christ and making disciples of all men.  We are bringing Christ into our world.  This is the Great Commission.  The last one is loving one another.  This is the day to day decision of loving every one we are involved with.  Even if some of the people we meet are not so lovely.  Love is a decision.  Following Christ is a decision as well, as bringing Him to others.  You do this by your thoughts, words, deeds and attitudes.  So today let your food be the will of Him who has sent us and let us accomplished His will for the glory and praise of God.
