Soul Food

1 Timothy 4:6 In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following.

The Word of God is good food for the soul.  It provides the nourishment that we need as Christians.  We are in the Word, hearing preaching of the Word our souls are fed.  We get all the essentials of a balance diet.  This diet is good for us and makes us spiritually healthy.

Do you spend time in God’s Word? Do you chew over the words you read afterwards?  Are you memorizing it?  Do you listen to preaching of it?  Are you praying over it and through it?  These are all vital ingredients that make a up this meal.  You need to have the right portions of each.  Take time and be in God’s Word and your soul will thank you for it.

Dear God, I thank you for Your Word.  It is full of the nourishment I need. Forgive me the for times I skip out on it or a fake my way through it.  I am only hurting myself when I do so.  Amen.
