Tim and I were receiving the shipment today of God’s Plan for His Disciples and thinking about where we will find hungry hearts who want to study Scripture and really learn from it. As we prayed, people came to mind who would immediately want these books. As we have found all over the world, it is the poor and persecuted.
After talking to thousands of people, feeding them and healing their sick, raising their dead, it was only the twelve disciples who said, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). People were amazed at the miracles Jesus performed, and even His teaching made them wonder at the wisdom that came from His mouth (Luke 4:36). Many were happy to have physical blessing, but did not want the spiritual food.
Jesus said, “Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him God the Father has set His seal” (John 6:27).
Why are so many satisfied to attend church services, put some money in the offering plate and tell the pastor he preached a good sermon, but they rarely spend time drinking from the Word of God. Jesus made a very harsh statement that caused most disciples to stop following Him; “So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you” (John 6:53). “After this many of His disciples turned back and no longer walked with Him” (6:66).
The point of this blog is not to get a new book into your hands, but to get your heart hungering for “the food that endures to eternal life.” Please do not substitute anything for this food!
