All humans need food to eat. It is a primary need to have physical strength. We are all working for it. But do you know the other important food that we should take every day?
Spiritual food is needed just like how we need physical food. Have you ever wondered why spiritual food is important to us? How can it help us? How can it keep us going? How can it keep our way to God?
We need spiritual food for our spiritual strength and spiritual growth.
Isaiah 55:2 “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance.”
Spiritual food is like the bread that we eat to have physical strength. Spiritual food is whatever assists our spiritual growth, nurtures us and encourages us to be a better person. Being a God-like person and being righteous are some of the requirements to be saved. To live according to God’s will is one of the most significant things we can do in our life. Living the way God wants us to, living with God as the center of our life — these are the keys to being saved and having eternal life after death.
We can truly have spiritual food through the Bible, by reading it and meditating on it. All the answers to our problems, struggles and confusion can be found in the Bible. There’s a strange feeling when you are reading the Bible; it’s like it is talking to us, it can calm our minds and make us feel fully complete as humans. It can mend our hearts, it can heal pain, and it can change us for the better.
You can also find spiritual food in many things, such as your hobby, work, family, relationships and even in nature. These can serve us spiritual food if they help us to grow and lead us to be a better person.
1 Corinthians 10:3-4 “and all ate the same spiritual food; and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.”
Let’s focus our eyes on Christ and live with His Word. Take spiritual food everyday to feed your spiritual life; the spiritual life that will lead us to eternal life. Do not focus on this world, this world will gone but the our life with God will be forever.
