John 4:34 – My Food

Today’s Readings: Judges 21:1‐25; Ruth 1:1‐22, John 4:4‐42, Psalm 105:1‐15, Proverbs 14:25

John 4:34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.

Context: Jesus tells his disciples this after he told the woman at the well that he was living water, and anyone who would come to him and drink would not thirst again.

Observations:
• Doing the will of God feeds us.
• Accomplishing God’s work feeds us.
• It reminds me of Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Application: When I am unsatisfied, I need to drink deep of Jesus and to partake in the life giving food that is doing his will.

Do you feel full after doing God’s will? Does it satisfy you?
