And then..

"... a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased." John 6:1

What miracles do people see in your life that cause them to want to follow Christ? Do you talk about how Great God you testify to the awesomeness of His majesty in your life...have you been made whole by His presence...has he pulled you out of despair? Share His greatness with others around you...

 "Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:15-16

Just some food for thought today...

Good Food...

 I love good food! By "good" I mean food made with quality ingredience; Food that someone has taken the time to prepare; Food that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat; Food that awakens all my senses. It can be simple, like fresh baked bread, or labor intensive like La Duni's Quatro Leche Cake.  A plate of delicious grapes, fresh mozorella and special crackers is a wonderful treat. Sounds picky doesn't it? The problem takes time and effort to produce such a meal, or snack. Not only is the preparation a little more time consuming...the eating should be as well.  I love to enjoy what I'm eating.  First of all you taste all the flavors. Secondly, you actually stay satisfied longer.

The same applies to our relationship with the Lord.  The Bible says:

 "And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."; "I am the vine, ye are the branches:"; "O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him." ( John 6:35, John 15:5a & Psalms 34:8)

It is not just a quick "Hey Lord, how's it going today? Guide me today and keep me safe." or "Father, you are Holy. Thank you for today...bless me and keep me from harm.  Help me to do your will."  You see, even though those prayers are BOTH great, without a relationship with the Lord of Lords that you are praying they reach much further than the ceiling?  Taste...that takes time.  Have you ever REALLY tasted.  When you do, you will hunger and thirst no more.  He is our portion and he is the "quality ingredience" we need to make life enjoyable.
