Quality Food

“I have food to eat that you do not know about.” (John 4:32)

            Jesus lived His life here on earth with a sense of determination and unflagging commitment which often puzzled His followers and His enemies alike.  When others encouraged Him to stop and eat, He continued to teach and preach to the crowds.  He stayed up late and rose early.  He seemed to always have energy for one more person, one more child, one more healing, and one more question.

            Jesus explains why – He was feeding His soul on the food of doing His Father’s will (see John 4:34).  Jesus understands the brevity of life and that there are opportunities which only come around once.  Each person He encountered was a potential once-in-a-lifetime moment.  With only three years to preach and teach before the cross, Jesus stirred up the fire within Himself and fed upon the blessing of being able to do meaningful work as it came.  Purpose is powerful.
