John 4:34 (New King James Version)

Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.

A. We eat food different from sinners

"Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment)"

We are eating food or meat that the world does not know and can't eat.

John 4:32 (Amplified Bible)

But He assured them, I have food (nourishment) to eat of which you know nothing and have no idea.

For the world eats a different food as well:

Proverbs 4:17 (Amplified Bible)

For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.

For our food and drink is JESUS:

John 6:33 (Amplified Bible)

For the Bread of God is He Who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.

John 4:10 (Amplified Bible)

Jesus answered her, If you had only known and had recognized God’s gift and Who this is that is saying to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him [instead] and He would have given you living water.

John 4:14 (Amplified Bible)

But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.

John 6:38 (Amplified Bible)

For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will and purpose but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent Me.
