Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Living Bread, the Food of Warriors”
Text: Leviticus 11:46-47
“This is the law of the animals and the birds and every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth,
to distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten.’ ”
“Living Bread, the Food of Warriors,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Under the Law of Moses the animals that could be eaten was highly regulated as clean or unclean. Only clean animals were allowed to be eaten.
Our Commander Jesus Christ fulfilled the Old Covenant of the Law with His Perfect Life, Death, and Resurrection from the dead. Now, with His Covenant of Grace and Mercy, all foods are clean and an additional food is provided for Believers, the Living Bread from heaven; which is Jesus Christ. He says to us today:
“I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.
I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” (John 6:48-51).
All physical food is for our physical body, however Living Bread from Heaven is required for our soul and spirit.
Jesus goes on to say:
“Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.” (John 6:53-56)
We understand how we “eat His flesh and drink His blood,” when we read His instruction on the Lord’s Supper of Communion (1Corin.11:23-29); we see that the “wafer or bread” is symbolic of His flesh, and the “grape juice” is symbolic of His blood.
Now we can understand why the Word of God is so critical in our life today. Daily meeting with our Commander and King for Breakfast. Lunch, and Dinner we eat His Living Bread, chew on It, digest It, and apply It to our life. The same way our flesh needs food - our soul and spirit needs The Living Bread from Heaven!
That’s why Living Bread is the Food of Warriors! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
