“Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work’” (Jn 4:34)
Every time church service ends, we always seem to find ourselves spending a considerable amount of time thinking of where we should grab dinner. Food is a necessity and also something we look forward to when we’re about to eat something that we have been craving. But when we look at this passage, Jesus actually turned down the physical food that His disciples were offering Him to eat, and placed emphasis on the food that we should long for — doing the will of God by sharing the message of salvation. Have we ever felt that way about preaching? Is that something that we would “crave” to do?
