     What I got from Jesus is: How do you find your food?
     What I got from Jesus today is an invitation to change the purpose of our lives. The purpose of lives for a lot of people is to find food for themselves and their families.  "Food" may have lots of meaning like real food so as to survive, money, belongings, all kinds of desires, power or anything other things that we are thirst and hungry for.

     But, here in verse 34 when the disciples asked Jesus to eat something, the reply of Jesus gives us a clue to happiness. Life of happiness comes from doing the will of God and to finish his work!

     Right away, we can see how the woman demonstrated what Jesus meant:

1. Changing the purpose of life
    From what she wanted to get water to go to tell the Good News to other people, even to those who did not accept her.

2. Fruit of finding the real food

    We can see how the woman led many Samaritans to believe in Jesus by her testimony and they were so thirsty spiritually that they wanted to stay with Jesus fro two days. And in being with Jesus they found the Savior of the world.

     Chinese like to ask people like this, "How are you lately?" The usual answer for a Chinese is this, "Well, very busy to find food! Tired!" People are always so busy and so tired is because they are finding the wrong food.

     Hope that you are finding the real food and that is to do the will of God and to finish his work!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to find the real food so that we can do your will and to finish your Kingdom work.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
