Coming as Bread to Be Our Life Supply (4)

Mark 7:26 Now the woman was a Greek, Syrophoenician by race. And she asked Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 And He said to her, First let the children be satisfied, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs. 28 And she answered and said to Him, Yes, Lord, but even the little dogs under the table eat of the little children's crumbs. 29 And He said to her, Because of this word, go. The demon has gone out of your daughter.

[Part 4 of 4] When a Syrophoenician, a typical Gentile, came to Him and asked Him to cast a demon out of her daughter, He opened Himself to let her know what He was. He revealed Himself to her as bread. He caused her to realize that He was bread for the feeding of the hungry children, that He was distributing Himself to people as their life supply. ...many of today's Christians do not realize that the Lord desires to distribute Himself as bread. Some Christians appreciate healings and miracles. But have you ever heard that genuine healings and miracles are for the Lord's feeding of hungry people? Nevertheless, this is the very matter revealed by the Lord Jesus to the Syrophoenician woman. In His conversation with this woman, the Lord revealed that what He was doing was not merely the performing of miracles-- it was a feeding. Actually, He was not doing miracles; He was dispensing Himself as bread, as the supply of food. Even if we receive a healing from the Lord, we still need Him as our life supply. To experience a miracle without receiving the Lord as our inner life supply is vain. We need to realize that even when He is our Healer, the Lord Jesus is our bread. In chapter seven of the Gospel of Mark the Lord opened Himself to the Syrophoenician woman to let her know that He was her food. She needed Him not only as the One to heal her daughter; she especially needed Him to be her food, her bread. (c) Living Stream Ministry.
