The Food That Will Not Perish
“Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man shall give to you, for on Him the Father, even God, has set His seal.” They said therefore to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.”
Hold up the banner of Jesus Christ! Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in Heaven! This is our commandment from God, that we love one another!
As long as we seek the food of this world, its pleasures, pastimes, and pursuits, we seek the food which perishes, but when we set our eyes on Heaven and spend time seeking the things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father, we seek the bread of eternal life! Jesus says that the work which we are to do is to believe in Him whom God has sent. This means that we are to truly know in our heart of hearts that Jesus is the Lord and the One sent to us from God.
Where do you stand today? Is Jesus truly the Lord of your life? Have you submitted yourself completely to Him to obey Him in all things and to go wherever He leads you? Truly I say to us all, Jesus is the Lord of Truth, Justice, and Righteousness, how could we not want to pledge our lives to such a worthy King? So many people have to submit themselves to leaders who are only out for their own selfish ambition. It is hard to submit to such a leader, but Jesus is perfect and His kingdom will be forever! Oh let us lay down our lives for Him! Let us lay our lives before Him and say, “Command us Lord!” We are submitting to a faithful King who does not send us where He Himself is not willing to go! Indeed He has already been there and conquered it! Hallelujah!!!
So I say to all of my brothers and sisters, “Rise up and serve the Lord with a joyful heart! Give yourselves to Him with a renewed vow today! Rise up as the body of Christ and do not bend any longer to the sins and pastimes of the world. Stand and become men and women who look like Jesus and behave like Jesus and love the world as Jesus did, laying His own life down for it! When people look at you let them see Jesus’ name written across your forehead. Let us be unable to be mistaken for anything other than a follower of Christ!” Make a commitment to spend time with Jesus every day so that you may grow in His image and enjoy His company!
Be encouraged brothers and sisters! Rise up and be a light to this world!
God bless you all!
