Hey I'm reading this ^ book. And I'm learning what it means to eat, meditate, and digest the word of God.
... Take a cute sec and read page 59^,
I'll give you a little bit of the beginning of 60 as well.
"God speaks. When God speaks things happen. Holy Scripture opens with the words, "God said..." ringing out eight times, and after each sounding we see, piece by piece, one after another elements of heaven and earth coming into being before out eyes and then climaxing in man and woman formed in the image of God. Psalm 33 compresses Genesis 1 into a sentence: "For he spoke, and it came to be..."(verse9). That sets the stage for everything that follows in our Bibles, this profuse outpouring of commands and promises, blessings and invitations, rebukes and judgments, directing and comforting that makes up our Holy Scriptures." E.P
Never would I have thought that at age 18 I would be learning how to eat all over again. The Word of God is so satisfying.
Let me know if you want to eat, chew, and digest the Bible while drinking a drink together sometime!!
"Reading is an immense gift, but only if the words are assimilated, taken into the soul - eaten, chewed, gnawed, received in unhurried delight." E.P
