How often do you think about food? I think about it all the time. With meal planning for our family, grocery shopping, cooking, and eating, food takes up a lot of my brain space. However, up until 6 years ago I had never really thought about spiritual food. I wasn’t even aware that I could eat and drink spiritually.
When it was revealed to me that Christ, Himself, is the reality of food, and that He is now our spiritual food and drink, and I began to eat and drink Him, I was amazed by the differences I experienced in my spiritual life. I began to experience more and more the abundance and victory I read about in the scriptures. As Jesus Christ became my source and nourishment my spiritual life increased dramatically.
As God was in the beginning stages of changing my spiritual diet, I felt Him ask me to stop doing a lot the religious things I was doing. This was very scary because I believed those things kept me on the straight and narrow. Would I go off the deep end without them? I had also been told that if I did certain things that God would bless me. Would bad things happen to me and my family if I stopped doing all the “right” things? I felt the Lord speak to my heart, “I will keep you. Trust Me.” This one small phrase has grown into something so much more than I could have ever imagined.
In ‘Bread & Wine’, I share my own story of learning to eat and drink the True Food, tips I have learned over the years, and 20 practical and enjoyable “recipes” that I have personally used. Despite the fact that I had grown up in church and been a believer for almost 20 years, these recipes were all new to me. They are simple ways to eat and drink Christ, or put another way: to draw from Him, to spend time with Him, to abide in Him, yet they are not your typical religious exercises.
I also share the only must-have ingredient, as well as ways to know if you are in fact eating Christ or if you are still eating man-made religious ideals. I share some of my own personal experiences with some of the recipes and include a special “extra” at the end.
So, is ‘Bread & Wine’ for you? Well…
- Do you want to experience the life that Christ freely offers?
- Do you go to church to be “fed”?
- Have you been wondering why you aren’t experiencing this life even though you are doing all the right Christian things?
- Are you in a spiritual dry spell and need something new and refreshing?
- Do you love Jesus and simply desire some new ways to enjoy Him?
- Are you wondering if you are eating the True Food or simply good morals?
- Do you have a deep longing for more of Jesus Christ, but aren’t sure how to fill it?
