“But He said to them, ’I have food to eat that you do not know about’” (John 4:32).
These are Jesus’ first disciples, personally recruited by him. They daily sat under his teachings, and witnessed his miracles. Even so, Jesus informs them there is still much nourishment to be had from the pantry of his Lordship that they could not, yet, even imagine. As his present day disciples, it is a reminder to stay hungry, curious, never satisfied with what we have known and experienced in the life of Christ; that what we think we know today is but an appetizer for that which we will someday know more fully.
