Bread Alone

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” Matthew 4:4

What do you need to sustain your life? Will money, food, shelter, and clothing save your life? The answer is No, these things may sustain your physical body temporarily but will not deliver your soul for eternity. Jesus addressed this issue when he sayed “Man can’t live on Bread alone” Remember during this time Jesus was being tested in the wilderness for 40 days by Satan (Matthew 4)  But Jesus knew that his temporary suffering could not compare to the Glory of God. (Romans 8:18)

So knowing this our feeding our souls with the Word of God? For we know what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18) We need to learn to not focus all our efforts on the temporary physical world, but use our time wisely to prepare for eternity, as we press on to the prize of our higher calling. (Philippians 3:14)

Knowing these we must deny ourselves, carry our cross, and follow Jesus. (Matthew 16:24) For we know he is the only Truth, Life, and Way to God. (John 14:6) All other roads lead to destruction. So choose your path wisely, let God be the lamp for your feet and guide your path. (Proverbs 3:6)

So don’t worry about what you need to eat or drink, for God knows your needs (Matthew 6:31) and will be your provider (Philippians 4:19)  Instead focus your time on preparing yourself for your eternal calling which is with our Lord and Savior, remember he is the Bread of Life, not this world in Jesus Christ Amen
