"Jesus said to them, 'My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.'" John 4:34

Jesus came into this world on purpose, for a purpose and by God's purpose. That purpose was: to redeem mankind from sin. Jesus knew his purpose. He was focused on it. That purpose was like nourishment to him. Knowing his divine purpose was his inspiration and encouragement day after day. He fed off it.

What's your divine purpose. Oh, maybe you don't know your long term or ultimate purpose like Jesus did. Perhaps you don't sense a special calling to a specific task or ministry or vocation. But what about today? What is your divine purpose for today? What does God expect from you today? It is not complicated. Simplified down to four words it is this: love God, love people. That is God's will for you today and every day. Make that a part of your regular diet.

Lord, we want to do you will. Whether it be a clear and specific call to a special assignment, or the more general call to simply love you and to love others, may thy will be done in us and through us. May we find strength and inspiration from feasting on your will for our lives. Be glorified in us, O Lord. Amen
