Why do you eat?

Why do you eat? Because you are hungry!

Why are you hungry? Because you are dying!

The fact is, approximately 50,000 cells in your body will die and be replaced with new cells in the time it has taken you to read this sentence! The food we eat becomes the source of nutrients to continually build replacements for dying cells. It's hungry work!

What will happen if you do not eat? You will die!! It's not rocket science! Do I have to force you to eat? No, you do so because you know what will happen if you don't!

Likewise, if we take the time to walk people through the law of God so that they can see they are dying (the soul that sins shall die), then they will become hungry for the bread of life and appropriate it for themselves!

We will not have to encourage them to eat of it, bribe them, or force feed them! Nor will they not grow weary of the taste! They will freely take of it and eat with a grateful heart, thanking their Father in heaven for his loving kindness and mercy for providing such a rich and delightful fare!
