This is what God gave me today in His word:
And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood. (Luke 22:19-20)
Just like our physical bodies, our Spiritual selves need to eat. Jesus has shown us how we can feed our starving Spirits in this passage.-Through eating His body, and drinking His blood. (Quite obviously, Jesus never intended this to ever have a physical meaning; any physical interpretation of this is barbaric, rather than Christian.) And we are able to do this, in the Bible. The Bible is to the Spirit as food is to the body… or, to be more accurate, understanding the Bible is nourishment.
Jesus has given himself for us in every imaginable way. He has died, given up Heaven for a time, and even taken time while He was on Earth to teach us, and He even provided a way for us to grow Spiritually. It would be foolish of us not to take what He’s offered.-It’d be foolish of us not to acknowledge Him as our savior, and then to find nourishment for our souls in the Bible.
You are Loved!
