Do you have a thirst for God’s word?


I just got an email from a fellow disciple who talked about wanting a greater thirst for the word! A great prayer indeed.

I was stunned by the simplicity and yet complexity of this thought.

Simple because it is so easy to drink from the deep well of Scripture. The Bible, when “rightly   read” (Spurgeon) fills and empowers us, as long as we drink it deeply, rather than sipping it. 

But this is where the complexity comes in. Our time decisions get in the way. Our feelings get in the way. Our preference to read man’s words about God rather than God’s own words gives up sips. I’d guess Oswald Chambers would be horrified if you told him you choose his great work daily over sitting and soaking up the Bible.
