What Are You Eating?

As I write this post it is Easter Sunday.  I have spent time at our sunrise service earlier today, followed by our regularly scheduled service a bit later in the morning.  Our family then gathered, as perhaps your’s and many other did, for an Easter lunch consisting of enough food to feed a few villages around the world.

Judging by what I have seen, this is how many people spend their Easters.  Going to church.  Eating and celebrating.  While many then spend their time hiding and hunting Easter eggs, I had a thought.

How many of those going to church and “celebrating” Easter really know Christ as their Savior?

*****

Before He died, Jesus said that the days before His return would be like those of the days of Noah.  There would be eating.  Drinking.  Giving in marriage.  We know how that turned out, don’t we?

Noah spent one hundred years building his ark.  God told Noah that it would rain and he needed to build a boat.  God was patient enough to give Noah one hundred years before He flooded the world.  What was everyone else doing?

Eating and drinking, leading and culminating in wickedness.  They ate and they were still blinded by the god of this world Satan.

*****

God gives us another option.  Does he not want to enjoy life and live it up?  Yes, I actually think does.  Just in a different way.

God tells us in to taste and see that He is good.  Eat what He has to offer.  Have you eyes opened so that you can see.  What do you find?  That God is good.

*****

That’s really what it boils down to, isn’t it?  We are going to eat.  We are going to enjoy life.  The results really depend what our food is.

We can eat and drink and go about our normal lives as though there is no consequence to what our lives are made up of.  We can live like there is no tomorrow, just like those in the days of Noah.  It doesn’t matter whether we live twenty, forty, or eighty years.  God is patient for a time.  Then the time is done.

Or we can approach it like Noah.  We can nourish ourselves on God’s word.  We can believe, like him and like Christ, that we don’t live by bread alone, but by the very word of God.  We can see.  See that God is for us and that Christ is life.  We can taste and see that He is good.

How about you?  What are you eating?

    I try hard to eat to live not live to eat. Physically. I want that same philosophy for my spiritual life. I want to eat to live.
