You Are What You Eat

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teach and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Colossians 3:16

Have you ever heard the old adage You are what you eat, and have you ever stopped to think how true this is?

We all have trillions of cells in our bodies which demand daily nutrients in order to function properly. Food affects these cells in every aspect of our being from energy levels to our general health. Healthy eating plays an important role in our body and our wellbeing.

So how about our Spiritual Health?

Spiritual food is spiritual strength and the Bible describes itself as spiritual food. We will not have much success in winning the spiritual battles we face if we starve ourselves to death. Thats why we need to feed ourselves on the word of God.

In Colossians 3:16 Paul is telling us to let the word take up residence in our lives. God gave his word to us to be our Spiritual food and nothing is more important to our Christian life than us being nourished with the word of God.

How do we feed ourselves on the word of God?

Receive the word: Commit yourself to go where Gods word is being taught and preached.
Read the word: Read and study your bible faithfully
Research the word: When studying the word write down what stands out to you.
Reflect on the word: Think about what it means and what it means to you.
Remember the word: Commit Gods word to memory.
