“Their love is the love of the table, not of the host; a love to the cupboard, not to the master of the house.” ~ Spurgeon
Jesus asked him the third time,
“Do you love me?”
“Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you!” (John 17:21)
Where are our affections? On the things the Lord provides?
Do we love the table?
Or the Host?
Do we love the cupboard…
…or the Master of the house?
“Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life….
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.” from John 6:26-35
