For the Lord is great,
and greatly to be praised:
he is to be feared above all gods.
(Psalm 96:4)

How Is Your Spiritual Diet?

Most Americans love to feast on junk food.  While it may taste good, consuming too much over an extended period of time can lead to severe health consequences.  While our choices of physical food have a significant effect on our physical health, our choices of spiritual food have a great effect on our spiritual health.  Just as a wholesome diet of physical food has a balance of key nutrients, the same is true when it comes to spiritual food.  God gave us the Bible to be our spiritual food.  When consumed regularly, it provides all the necessary nutrients for spiritual growth.  See the verses below that compare God’s words to different types of food.

  1. Milk – 1 Peter 2:2
  2. Bread – Matthew 4:4
  3. Honey – Psalm 119:103
  4. Meat – Hebrews 5:14

How much do you enjoy eating… spiritually?  Your spiritual health is in direct proportion to your intake of God’s word.

Thy words were found, and I did eat them;
and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart:
for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts.
(Jeremiah 15:16)

Choose Life

Last Friday, June 24th, was a monumental day for all Americans who value human life.  The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, paving the way for individual states to ban abortions.  The Christian response to this decision should be two-fold:

(1)  Praise God for what He has done in bringing about this decision!
(2)  Pray that states would take the necessary steps to make abortion illegal

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing: therefore choose life,
that both thou and thy seed may live:
(Deuteronomy 30:19)
