From “Discipleship and Discipline” by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“Jesus demonstrates the same ability to delay gratification while simultaneously setting an example of the dedication to task required of disciples when He responded to His disciples’ queries regarding food after His encounter with the woman of Samaria.  In John 4: 31ff the encounter is described as follows: Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” But He said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” So the disciples were saying to one another, “No one brought Him anything to eat, did he?” Jesus said* to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.”  Note Jesus’ follow-through from will to work.”
