Bread alone

breadMat 4:4  But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

Satisfaction – what does this bring to mind?

•    Food
•    Sex
•    New car
•    New House
•    Good job
•    Retirement
•    A sandy beach
•    Etc…

If you had these
•    Would you be satisfied
•    Want a something better

When things do not go our way, we may turn to
•    Over eating
•    Too much alcohol
•    Drugs
•    Etc…

Jesus said that God has spoken, and God’s words will satisfy our hunger. So if we look at what God has said in the Bible then it will satisfy a hunger inside of us.

Possible action:
Start a journey and examine what God has said. Look at Jesus first as he is said to be God in the flesh. Read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and see what you think.

Prayer:
Dear God, I would like to find out a bit more about you and what you say through your Bible. May I find out what you say about life and the hunger we feel inside, and how you can satisfy this. In Jesus name. Amen.
