    Eating to no Profit

    “But with many of them He was not well pleased,” because they denied His presence, and so their carcasses fell in the wilderness. He gave them bread direct from Heaven; and since Christ is the bread that came down from heaven, it is evident that if they had seen Him in the gift of the manna, and had acknowledged Him in all their eating, and in all the strength derived from it, they would have been perfect and righteous before God. They would have lived a life of faith, and whoever does that is just, for “the just shall live by faith.” The children of Israel died in the wilderness because they did not eat by faith. “He that doubteth is damned if he eat; because he eateth not by faith; for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” Since they perished at last, it would have been just as good for them if they had not lived at all. God expects that men will eat and drink righteousness; for Christ says, “Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.” 1Matthew 5:6. He who does not eat and drink righteousness, eats and drinks to no purpose.EVCO 251.1
