Today our Associate Pastor John-Jo Burns brought us the message “Silence” from 1 Samuel 28.

Pastor’s Probe

Spiritual food

Last week I received a letter from CBM Australia alerting me to a severe food shortage in Madagascar. The number of severely malnourished children has doubled in the past four months as they don’t have access to food. Suffering from malnourishment, they often get sick and even die. Please take time some time to support the work of CBM Australia (opens in a new tab).  
 
However, malnourishment is not always caused by a food shortage. It is also caused when people choose to eat junk food instead of good food and unhealthy eating habits. 
 
When Jesus said ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’ (Matthew 4:4), he wasn’t discouraging us to eat physical food. Rather he was pointing to the only means by which our spiritual life is nourished – the word of God.  
 
Christians are spiritually malnourished especially in the west, not because we don’t have access to the word of God but because we don’t feed on the word of God as often as we should. As a result, we suffer from spiritual lethargy and dryness. 

Let us make every effort then to feed on the word of God regularly. Rather than reading the bible on the run, take time to meditate on what it says and put it into practice.
