標  題:食物

經  節:耶穌說:「我的食物就是遵行差我來者的旨意,做成祂的工。」(約翰福音四章34節)

由耶穌的事工中,我們看到祂行事的優先級與門徒所關切的事,明顯不同。門徒通常比較關心如何滿足自己肉體的需要(馬太福音十四:15-17;約翰福音四:8;路加福音十八:28)。耶穌一再保證天父知道他們的需要,並且會供應(路加福音十一:11-13)。耶穌強調,人生優先的次序應該是:[先求神的國和祂的義],一切生活所需自然會被供應(馬太福音六:33)。

耶穌在井邊對那婦人說話時,祂的門徒正在附近村莊買食物。當門徒尋找地上食物時,耶穌給予這個婦人『活水』,可以永遠滿足她的靈魂。當門徒回來時,他們慫恿耶穌趕緊吃。祂回答,祂的[食物]是遵行神的旨意。因門徒注意的是地上所需,他們誤解了耶穌的回答。耶穌一生遵行天父的旨意。因耶穌那日的順服,那位婦人得到永生。因她的興奮,帶領許多人來見耶穌,許多人相信耶穌真的是基督——那位救世主(約翰福音四:39-42)。

使徒保羅瞭解耶穌要教導門徒些什麼。當保羅寫信給住在羅馬的信徒時,他強調:[神的國不在乎吃喝,只在乎公義、和平,並聖靈中的喜樂。在這幾樣上服事基督的,就為神所喜悅,又為人所稱許。](羅馬書十四:17-18

當撒但試探耶穌把石頭變成麵包的時候,耶穌引用經文,略述自己的一生與事工的重點:[……使你知道,人活著不是單靠食物,乃是靠耶和華口裡所出的一切話。](申命記八:3


Food

Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work." (John 4:34)

Throughout Jesus’ ministry, we see a marked difference between His priorities and the concerns of His disciples. The disciples were often preoccupied with how to meet their physical needs (Matt. 14:15–17;_John 4:8; Luke 18:28). Jesus repeatedly assured them that the Father knew their needs and would provide (Luke 11:11–13). Jesus stressed that their priority was to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness”; the necessities of daily life would be provided (Matt. 6:33). When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, His disciples had gone into a nearby town to get food. While His disciples were seeking earthly nourishment, Jesus was giving this woman “living water” that would satisfy her soul for eternity. When they returned, the disciples urged Jesus to eat. He replied that His “food” was to do the will of His Father. Since their attention was on earthly matters, His disciples misunderstood His reply. Jesus’ very life came from obeying His Father. Because of Jesus’ obedience that day, the woman received eternal life. In her excitement, she brought many others to Jesus to hear for themselves, and many believed that He was indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world (John 4:39–42).

The apostle Paul understood what Jesus had been teaching His disciples. When Paul wrote to the believers in Rome, he stressed that “the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men” (Rom. 14:17–18).

When Satan tempted Jesus to turn stones into bread, Jesus quoted the Scriptures, summarizing the focus of His life and ministry: “Know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord” (Deut. 8:3).
