I guess I should start off by saying, "I'm sorry." It has been way too long since my last blog. I don't know about you, but I like to eat. I eat out of necessity and sometimes out of want. Because I live in a
gluten-free home I love eating real bread when I can. Bicsuits, cornbread, or maybe even a donut. Have you ever tried to abstain from eating for a day? For a skinny preacher like me that could be a death wish!! When you go a day without eating or maybe you just miss one meal you feel tired, unmotivated, and sometimes sick. Food is needed to help our bodies have energy and food helps us receive the vitamins and nutrients we need to survive. Jesus spoke a lot about food. He said that "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." He also said, "Give us this day our daily bread." So what is Jesus talking about when He references bread? Biscuits from Cracker Barrell, toast from Old Crow BBQ, or donuts from Krispy Kreme? He is talking about His Word, THE B.I.B.L.E., The Good Book,The Scriptures. It is known as the Bread of Life!! So if we go a day without it we are spiritually tired, spiritaully unmotivated, and sometimes spiritually sick. Most professing Christians try gorging themselves on Sunday morning with the Word hoping that it will keep them full all week long, but it doesn't. I want to encourage you to partake of the Word on a Daily basis!! It will keep you full, help you focus on ministry, and give your the energy to ward off the devil.
