OT Lesson: Daniel 1:1-5, 8-21 (Daniel refuses to eat the King’s food)
Gospel Lesson: John 6:35, 41-42, 53-59 (The body and blood of Jesus)
The cliché “you are what you eat” is true in several different ways: physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. The food you eat has a profound effect on your body’s ability to function. The books you read, the friends you make, the thoughts you think, the places you enjoy – they all affect who you are as a person. It is also true spiritually – only the Gospel, God’s Word and the sacraments, can feed our souls and bring spiritual life. That is why worship and Bible study are so critical for follower of Jesus!
