Life force

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”  Matthew 6:26 NIV

What is required to live?   You need to breathe.  Water is pretty essential.  Can’t live without food.  Light is always good.  Who doesn’t need love?  Or forgiveness?  We can’t exist without these things.  

How does the Bible address each one?

“In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”  Job 12:10 NIV

“Whoever believes in me,” as Scripture has said, “rivers of living water will flow from within them.”  John 7:38 NIV

“For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.”  John 6:55 NIV

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  John 8:12 NIV

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.  Now remain in my love.”  John 15:9 NIV

“This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”  Matthew 26:28

The bottom line is that we need Jesus.  Without Him we cannot live the good life.  

How are you living for Jesus today?

Prayer:  Thank you, Jesus, for providing us Your breath, Your living water, Your real food and drink, Your light, Your love, Your forgiveness.  Amen
