Time with God - Feb. 21, 2013

 

Psalms 119:103

How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Jesus said, “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me.” (John 5:39)

He said these words to people who searched the Scriptures for the wrong reasons. But for those of us who have a living relationship with Jesus, these words of His draw us to search the Scriptures for the right reason!

Because we love Jesus, we love the Bible. We want to get to know Jesus more, and so we soak our lives in the Word of God.

If you have a relationship with another person, and you want to get to know them better, you have a conversation with them. You listen carefully to what they share with you about themselves. You focus on them.

It is the same with your walk with God. God is speaking to you; but as long as your Bible is closed, you miss out on so much of what God wants to say and do in your life. The Bible can be dry if you approach it academically. But if you approach it with an open heart, listening for the voice of God in your heart, it will be “sweeter than honey to your mouth”. No one can taste it for you. You mustopen your Bible andsavor its sweetness for yourself.
