VIDEO Scroll Food

So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.” And he said to me, “Take and eat it.” Revelation 10:9

On two occasions in the Bible, God prepared scroll food for his prophets. The first was when He gave Ezekiel a scroll with writings on both sides, probably because the Lord had so much to say. Ezekiel ate it and found it as sweet as honey, though the message included words of judgment for Judah. It was still God’s Word, and, as one commentary says, “the sweetness came from the source of the words.” The apostle John had a similar experience in Revelation 10:8-11. His scroll, too, tasted as sweet as honey.

The Bible is often compared to food, to bread, to milk, to meat, and to nourishment. It is the proper diet for the inner self, and it’s necessary to keep us from spiritual starvation. People today are starving for spiritual truth, but many aren’t even aware they are hungry. There is a famine of the hearing of the Word of God (Amos 8:11).

One of the best ways to stimulate the appetite of others is letting them see how much you enjoy your daily bread. Keep an open Bible nearby all the time. Read it frequently. Quote it often. Trust it always. And find every opportunity to share the Bread of Life with others.

Put your nose in the Bible every day. It is your spiritual food. Kirk Cameron
