Bread of life

If you’ve tasted a part of the bread of life once, you’ll never want anything ever again. When Jesus spoke to the Samaritan women He told her: “The water I can give you, drink of it and you’ll never thirst again.” 

Since the 25th of January I’ve tasted the real love of God and since then I’ve not been the same. I felt so alive in God and could “live again”. When temptation came I could easily rebuke it and go on with life, because I was knew that I had something greater in me that is in the world. The week of the 8th of February things changed a bit, without me realizing. The devil started to creep in slowly with things of this world and it felt like the ‘Love’ faded away. I was beginning to spend more time in the world than with God. Last night (11th February) the devil came to knock on my door with temptation like I’ve never experienced since the 25th of January. The fact is, I didn’t give in to masturbation of pornography, but still fed the flesh in some sort of way.

After everything happened, I looked back at this week and saw how everything led up to this one night. Now I could understand what it means to live in the Spirit. To really say no to the desires of the flesh and since I’ve experience the love of God I could resist temptation, but the moment I started to live in the flesh and feed the flesh with things of this world, then everything started to go bad without me realizing it. 

Be alert! The devil is walking around like a roaring lion. Seeking to kill, steal and destroy.
