Spiritual Food That Satisfies
In the Christian gospel Jesus invites us to a feast. We are invited not only to feast with him but feast on him.
Hours before he went to the cross Jesus hosted a feast with his closest friends. He held out bread and said, ‘This is my body.’ And also the wine, ‘This is my blood.’
Through faith Christ gives us unrivalled spiritual nourishment and satisfaction. This is summed up through the eucharist (aka communion, Lord’s Supper).
However, as with ordinary food, this spiritual food can be abused or avoided, both to our detriment.
Only when we understand Christ and the gospel can we delight in that spiritual food.
