What You Are

17 Apr
What You Are…

One of Grandfather’s favorite expressions was, “You are what you eat.” Of course, it’s true. Whatever you eat, that’s what you are. That’s true in the physical realm and also in the spiritual. If you partake of spiritually bad food, if you receive into your heart what is impure, carnal and ungodly, your life will become the same.

You might say, “I stay far away from those things.” That’s good, but it’s not enough because the inverse is also true— you are not what you don’t eat.

All believers are called to be as Jesus, in every part of their lives. So here’s the question— are you like Jesus in every part of your life? If not, the problem can be solved with a change of diet. You are what you eat— so the more you partake of Jesus, the more you’ll become like Him. Just as you can’t partake of a food without becoming like it, it can’t fail.

Commit yourself to partaking more of His word, His presence, His love, and His beauty, and your life will become more and more Jesus-like. It’s a basic law— you are what you eat.

Scripture: Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval. John 6:27

Today, spend time in His presence and partake of the bread of Life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
