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.
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.
