When we get together, and spend time together, we enjoy the taste of good food. Some hands are so blessed that they add perfect ingredients in the right quantity while cooking the ultimate meal. The mere thought of that delicious home made food makes my mouth water!!
But the ultimate "soul food" is the Bread of Life. This food makes you feel satisfied and content, sort of like your favorite meal. But only the Bread of Life provides lasting satisfaction and contentment. Jesus tells us He is the Bread of Life, the ultimate soul food, because only He provides us with spiritual nourishment that lasts.
For our life here on earth, we certainly need that yummy food. But for the long haul, we should long for that real food - the soul food.
