John 4:32, meanwhile his disciples show up. Here they come back from Whataburger and they’re thinking about food. My stomach is growling. I want something to eat and drink. And they urged him ‑‑ of course they saw him talking to this woman, too. And they said, “Rabbi, eat something.” Some people just don’t get it. And the disciples here, they just didn’t get it.
And that’s okay if you don’t get it. One day you’ll get it. And we’re going to talk about when you don’t get it and when you get it during this series. Because there’s a guy I’m going to talk about in a couple of weeks named Simon Peter. The guy didn’t get it. I mean, he just didn’t. And Jesus gave him a nickname. He said, “Simon Peter, you’re the rock.” And you know everybody around him was like, “Ha! Jesus, the rock? This guy is up and down roller coaster. The rock? Wishy‑washy. He’s hot, he’s not.” But Simon Peter became one of the greatest men of God ever and we’re going to talk about that. So we can all identify with that, can’t we? Sometimes we just don’t get it.
And the disciples didn’t get it. And Jesus said in John 4:32, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
“What,” they’re thinking? And then they said this in John 4:33. This is some Hebrew humor here. “Could someone have brought him food?”
They’re thinking, “Did someone bring him a Chick‑fil‑a sandwich and we didn’t know about it?” Wow.
And then Jesus said in John 4:34, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”
You see, we’re nourished not by what we take in. We’re nourished not by just what we take in. We’re nourished not by just what we take in, but also what we give out.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global Life
