I love to eat! My daughter just landed a job at one of my favorites….OUTBACK! Steak and Potato and Salad…everyday! That is ‘my food.’…or is it?
If I want to be like Jesus, then my food and appetite needs to be satisfied by doing the ‘will’ of my heavenly Father. AND the greatest news, is I don’t have to search for His will. He told me what it is. The fields are white unto harvest! Go into all the world and preach the whole gospel. Tell people the good news about Jesus, set the captives free. Simply offer them the ‘free’ gift that I have paid for. Our job is to give them the whole gospel and to make sure there is no ‘hole’ in our gospel. That message of hope is not just a cerebral and informational message, it is one of selfless abandonment of our very lives and the surrendering of our hearts to Jesus. To understand that whatever breaks the heart of God, should also break my heart. To love and look after the ‘overlooked’ and the ‘least of these.’ Will I care for the broken hearted, the widows, the orphans, the prisoner, the leper (aids) victim? Will I DO the will of my Father? Let it be! I must follow His will.
John 4: 34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. 35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.
