Here’s a picture of one of my favourite foods- laksa! (Yep, that is indeed a random pic of that dish, as I haven’t got any cooked laksa at the moment to photograph!) And while laksa is great; if I eat too much of my favourite food, then I’d eventually get sick of it, and may want to try eating something else, say maybe sushi or curry or a chocolate cake… Aren’t we glad that there are variety in foods!
We have many favourite types of food, and when we could easily switch between eating laksa an eating a burger; from eating pancakes, to eating beef casserole; from eating greasy fish and chips, to eating a 10 course seafood buffet. We have all this choice to fill up our physical hunger. So let me pose a question to you?
In John 6:35, Jesus declares ‘ I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty’ and I am left speechless. In comparison to our most favourite food in the whole world in which we think we cannot live without; Jesus in terms of satisfying our spiritual hunger, is far greater than that, as only He can gives us spiritual sustenance. What a mind boggling thought! He alone gives answers to the questions humanity seeks after. So what is your favourite physical food? Do you have any ‘spiritual’ foods other than Jesus? God is calling you into a relationship with Him today, and He yearns to be with you. Will you eat from the bread of life and drink from the well? I know I have! God is calling you to take the next step with Him!
