Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Light and Bread”
“Command the children of Israel that they bring to you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to make the lamps burn continually.”
““And you shall take fine flour and bake twelve cakes with it. Two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each cake.”
Our Breakfast this morning is Light and Bread. The Priest was ordered to “keep the Lamps burning for Light, continually; and to prepare Bread continually from sabbath to sabbath. This also is a figure of our Commander Jesus. He is the Light of the World (John 1:9) and He is the Bread of Life (John 6:48). His life as Son of Man demonstrated Light and Bread. He gave Light of wisdom and the revelation of God to others through the parables he taught and the miracles He performed - and He gave Himself as the Bread of Life to others. In other words, Our Commander’s Life was a Life of Service, giving Light and Bread!
He sends us forth as His Warriors, into this world as His light of the world (Matt.5:14-16) to shine for all to see the wonderful works of God in us and through us - as works of service. And He sends us as His Bread of Life, sharing His Bread of Life with others. We share God’s ‘Bread’ by sharing our personal testimony of what He’s done in our life and then invite others to “.. taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Psa.34:8).
We are empowered with Holy Spirit’s Oil for our ‘Light’ for world to burn continually; and the Life of our Commander Jesus as our ‘Bread’ of Life to eat every day, for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Humbled by His Extravagant Love we walk as beggars showing other beggars where to find Bread, this Bread of Life. Ooooh Rah!
