Labor for the Food That Endures

Labor for the Food that Endures!

John 6:27

“Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”

    This ministry has been an exercise in faith. We have depended on gifts, our own labor from waiting tables to counseling, living from week to week.

    Through our experience we have learned to feed on “the food that endures to eternal life.” We have no guarantees of having enough funds each month. There have been times when we have lived on one meal a day.

    Jesus directs our attention to the food of the Spirit, not because he does not want to feed our bodies, but because he wants to break our cycle of worrying over our material needs–food, housing, and the next set of bills. None of these things will last forever.

    Our true purpose is to become Christ to others, sharing of ourselves, so that materially all are provided for, and we are fed  eternally through the love and grace of God. Thank you for walking this journey with us. Deus Meus et Omnia, “My God and all things.” Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
