A friend of mine has a guest farm and on this farm there is a dam. This dam is seasonal, it is normally dry but when it rains the dam quickly fills up. But after a few months it dries up again. There are no fish in this dam but quite often guests that visit the farm pull out their fishing rods and they start fishing, very hopeful to catch a fish but they don’t realize that THIS DAM HAS NO FISH!
It is exactly the same with so many people who go to church and go and sit in the pews and who listen to a preacher in the pulpit. They go there for food for their souls but they go away empty, they go away hungry because THERE IS NO FOOD!
Man will not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the MOUH OF GOD, not from the mouth of a preacher, not from other people but from Jesus HIMSELF, from His Holy Spirit living inside of you. His sheep LISTEN to His VOICE and they FOLLOW Him. Jesus Christ Himself is the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE, He is the BREAD OF LIFE. If we do not receive from Him personally every day then we will go hungry, we will PERISH.
We need to hear from Jesus, not in a “church,” not from a paid preacher, but from Jesus Christ Himself. If Jesus does not live IN US and if we are not fed BY HIM every day we will perish! Don’t go to an empty dam with no fish. Don’t go looking for food where there is none. Go on your knees and call out to Jesus, seek Him with all your heart until you find Him. Then STAY WITH HIM and let Him feed you with THE BREAD OF LIFE every day.
Are you feeding from what Jesus Christ Himself, gives you every day?
May Jesus bless you.
