There is a food that our Spirit was created for and yearns to receive. This nourishment is what gives life itself meaning and takes beings from mere existence to Living. One of the beauties of this feast is that while we crave it in our deepest parts, giving this delicacy to others is the way in which grasp its fullness.
“But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” – John 4:32-34
Jesus made this statement right after His encounter with the woman at the well that we talk about in CRAZY LOVE….3.
Why is that important?
What did Jesus give the woman at the well or do for her at the moment He met her?
Jesus gave the woman something no one had ever given her. Something her soul desperatly longed for and something that she was on husband number 6 for and still could not find.
Jesus gave the woman at the well the same thing He Freely offers us and yearns for us to Freely give away – Unconditional CRAZY LOVE and Acceptance of someone as they are NOT as the “should be!”
Jesus came and gave without ever asking for a return on His investment of the CRAZY LOVE He was offering. To Jesus and especially to our broken souls giving Love Freely without expecting return and knowing that return is Completly unlikely IS Food that is far superior to the food that will only be with us for a short time physically.
God made us so we need this food, Christ showed us how to give this food and The Spirit leads us to share this food with the mission we were given.
