Lk. 14, 15

1.  We appreciate the blessings of food for the body.  It sustains physical life and health.  We labor constantly to secure it.  Jesus fed the hungry multitudes, then preached concerning spiritual food.

2.  It is more blessed to “eat bread in the kingdom of God.”  Grace is just as indispensable for the soul as is food for the body.

3.  It is needed to nourish the spiritual life and keep us strong.  How important this is!  God needs strong hearts for his work in the world.

We grow strong by prayer, reading of the scriptures, faith in Christ, worship and service.

4.  It satisfies the longings of the heart and gives us peace.  How restful it is–a blessed experience indeed.

5.  Let us feed on him by faith this hour and every day, that we may have victory over every foe.
