生命的粮 [Bread of Life]





Book: Deuteronomy (Old Testament)
Author: Moses

Deuteronomy 8:3 :“So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.”

Today’s Meditation: Manna was the main food given by God to Israelite when they were in the wilderness. Lord Jesus Christ defended Himself against temptations by quoting these words when He was hungry. The purpose of God to allow them in hunger is to let them know that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. The words of God are the spiritual food and are more important than the manna in the wilderness. We do not live by food alone, but we still need food to survive. Our spiritual life does not rely on food, but by the way of God. Without the way of God (Jesus Christ), we will only have short temporary life instead of long eternal life. Thus, the words of God are more important than food.
