Our Daily Bread

Matthew 4:4

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 4:4         

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”      

Just like bread (food) supports life to your body, the Word of God supports life to your soul. Your body can’t go too long without nourishment. Without food for prolonged periods your body becomes weak. It’s the same for your soul, without regular nourishment your soul too becomes weak. God provided manna to the Israelites satisfying their hunger and in doing so, saved them. Just like the manna nourished the Israelites, the Holy Bible is available to you to nourish your soul and save you. Additionally, good nutrition helps you to grow strong, is part of a healthy lifestyle and helps to fight off disease. The Word of God also helps you to grow strong, to live a healthy lifestyle and to fight off sin and temptation. Jesus Himself, was tempted by the devil and in response He quoted scripture. But if you don’t know scripture how can you use it to fight the schemes of the devil? If you want to grow stronger spiritually, nourish your soul by reading the Word of God daily.

Experience God for Yourself

Psalm 34 8

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

I am personally inviting you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God.
