You Are What You Eat (John 6:51)

“You are what you eat!”

How many times have we heard this? Fill your body with junk food and you will soon reap the negative effects of a high salt, fat, and carbohydrate intake. Consume healthy fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants and you will live a healthy life. If only it were that simple!  We need to prioritize a low carb and high protein intake; the traditional food pyramid is wrong. But taking in all that protein often leads to a high fat intake. Can’t have that! No! You should instead focus upon a high carb diet that is rich in fiber and complex carbohydrates and lots of olive oil. But wait! That could lead to increased gluten intake and devastate your immune system. You need to first cleanse your body of all the acquired toxins in our environment.  Try the grapefruit diet to cleanse and detoxify.  Breaking news alert! Too much citric fruits increases the risk of skin cancer!

For every diet that is touted, there is another diet that refutes those claims. You are what you eat. And if scientists, nutritionists, and physicians ever agree on what that should be, it will be a true revelation and miracle!

Maybe that is just what we need, a miracle, not from this earth, but sent from heaven!

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.
John 6:51

Our diet is important. But God has an answer for both our physical hunger and spiritual hunger. Jesus gives us what we need rather than what we want. But we need to turn to Jesus Christ to truly understand what our true needs are. If you confess your sins to Him and truly repent from them and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, He is faithful and just to forgive you.

And if you do this, you will begin to truly understand that we are what eat. When we eat of the living bread of Jesus Christ, we will no longer hunger and our spiritual and material needs will finally be satisfied.

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
