We Are What We Eat! by John Hagee

Do you know the expressions, “You are what you eat”? I don’t know if it’s true in the physical realm, but it’s certainly true in the spiritual realm.

We Are What We Eat! by John Hagee
The poor shall eat and be satisfied; Those who seek Him will praise the Lord. Let your heart live forever!.

We Are What We Eat!

Do you know the expressions, “You are what you eat”?  I don’t know if it’s true in the physical realm, but it’s certainly true in the spiritual realm.  If we eat the wrong spiritual foods, we’re not going to feel well or be happy.  If we take in negative, hateful and loveless thoughts, we’re guaranteed to be miserable.  If we watch television and take in several savage murders salted with hatred, revenge and rebellion, and peppered with greed and lust, we’re surely not going to feel too happy.

Then when we go to church on Sunday morning, we turn up our noses.  The hymns don’t appeal to us.  When we hear the pure Word of God, we’re not interested.  It’s milk for newborn Christians and meat for mature saints, but we push it away.

Why?  Simple!  We can’t eat slop all week and feel like a saint on Sunday morning.  It’s impossible.  God’s standard of righteousness won’t permit it.

Heaven or Hell on Earth?

I read of a man who went to a professional football game one Sunday afternoon.  To his dismay, he found himself on the bus sitting between two men who were on their way home from church.  They were talking about how God answers prayer and discussing the joy and happiness of knowing Christ and enjoying His presence in their homes and marriages.

When the man got off at the stadium, he told his friends, “I got stuck on the bus between two guys talking about God answering prayer and going to heaven and all that stuff.  I was sure in one hell of a fix!

There you have it!  What was heaven for two saints was hell on earth for him.  He had no appetite for it.  He was spiritually sick.

When we lack appetite for spiritual things, which is the basis of happiness, it’s not because we’re too sophisticated or too intellectual to accept God’s standard of righteousness.  It’s because we’re too spiritually anemic to know we’re dying.
