In the first part of the series I presented a formula for spiritual health. We need to have a healthy diet and a good balance of exercise and rest. All that together equals as the spiritual immune system. God (the Spiritual Immune System) : Father(Nutrition) + Son(Rest)+ Holy Spirit(Exercise)
The second part of the series was about the Father/Rest in the equation. This third part of the series is about the Son/Nutrition. The fourth part of the series is going to be about the Holy Spirit/exercise.
We need spiritual food in order to be spiritually alive and healthy.The right spiritual nutrition means both getting healthy nutrition (Bible reading, prayer, fellowship with believers etc) and avoiding the junk food (the Hollywood way of life or any other intruding way of thinking).
Jesus is our best lead how to get healthy nutrition. He examplified prayerful living. But Jesus was not just a teacher, he also restored our connection to God and leads the way to eternal life!
Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:35-40, NIV)
Jesus is not just giving the bread of life. Jesus is the bread of life, he is our best nutrition! When we believe in Jesus we will never go hungry. When we believe in Jesus, we will have eternal life. That’s some bread, all right! It has all the incredients we need: all necessary vitamins and minerals, plenty of fiber and rich in taste. Everything we need and desire for food! Jesus provides us the best possible nutrition for us to be sustained, revived and blessed. If we abide in him we will never go hungry. If we abide in him our lives are restored. If we abide in him we will live forever. God is indeed our best spiritual immune system!
Guide us to seek for healthy nutrition.
Protect us from spiritual junk food.
