Now that we see we need Jesus in the picture if we are to succeed in our dieting or anything else for that matter, let’s look more at Matthew 11:29: “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” First, look that is says learn of me. Here we see Jesus as the teacher. Jesus is God so don’t you think He knows everything about everything? He knows each of our diet issues and He has answers for every one of them. Here is where many fail because they look at what the church teaches and what religion has done to our view of God and Jesus. When you look at Jesus in the Gospels, you see God in action. He is always teaching. He is telling us how to overcome. He is showing us, like a shepherd guiding his sheep. See Jesus as God who cares and isn’t mad at your failures. He will teach you to succeed on your diet. We will look many times this year at what Jesus teaches us in our everyday struggles with the diet.
