“My food is to do the will of the one who sent me to finish his work. [...] My Father is at work until now, so I am at work. (John 4: 34; 5:17)

Jesus, the Word made flesh and dwelling among us reminds us in His own words, what His food is and as we “put on Christ” what our food is to be. Holy Scripture, the written Word of God reminds us: Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him, the Father, God, has set his seal.

Doing the will of the God the Father is the source of our spiritual nourishment. Doing our own will feeds our disordered appetites and keeps the structures of Sin in place. Ongoing prayer, repentance, conversion breaks down the pressurized vacuum of sin within us and makes our “stony hearts” more pourous empowering us to receive God’s Grace and activate HIs Presence within us.

    I see that this posting is over two years old–I wanted to contact the author. I love that you said, “makes our stony hears more pourous. God opened this verse to me (I am sure I have read many times)–about two or more years ago. It seems I get heart punctures the size of a pin, day by day, by day. All this time I was blind–I kept asking God to help me–marriage (now divorced), work, friends, etc, I am only now saying “Thy will be done.” and so slowly seeking it. It’s a puzzle to me and a new way of thinking and seeing. I still struggle to understand God’s love. For so many years–nearly all articles address this by assuming we think we are too terrible to be loved by God. That’s not it at all. No child however bad is surprised that their parents love them, but they are deeply troubled and broken when they feel unloved and abandoned by that parent–that is how I feel about God. No amount of bible verses or sermons (and my head knows them to be true) have every opened my heart to truly experience His love “that surpasses knowledge. I would welcome any insight you may share regarding this.

    Thanks and blessings, Cynd

    There’s so much happening at this well it truly boggles the mind. You really start understanding the mind of God better after reading the powerful messages contained in chapter 4 alone. Words spoken into creation years ago that still have the power to effect change today. My food is to do the will of Him who sent me & to finish His work. Amen & Hail Jesus the King of the universe.
