John 4:34

What is most pleasing to your soul?  Setting a new personal record?  Maybe it’s a new scoring record?  Perhaps a solid friendship is most pleasing?  Beautiful music? Today, we’ll see what was pleasing to Jesus’ soul.

In John chapter 4 and verse 34 we read, “Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work.’”

Jesus says that doing God’s will and finishing His life’s work is more satisfying to Him than the biggest steak dinner.  Pleasing His Father in heaven was what fed his soul.

Think about it:
• Food for your body will only satisfy you for a short time, and soon you’ll be hungry again.
• Soul food like Jesus mentions will last for years.
• Pleasing God with all of your life yields satisfaction that endures throughout eternity.

Step up to the Soul Food Cafeteria line and satisfy your heart’s deepest longings.  Take as much as you like, the bill has been paid.  Jesus is picking up the check.
As you play today, invest your soul, your mind and your body in this season’s best endeavor.  Playing with your best effort will encourage your teammates and will feed your soul.
