FEEDING ON SCRIPTURE

We are free to feed our minds from every good source, but there is no source like the Bible.  It is a written revelation of who God is and of what God’s purposes are for humanity.  No book comes close to it in influence or significance.  Eugene Peterson writes, “Christians feed on Scripture.  Holy Scripture nurtures the holy community as food nurtures the human body.  Christians don’t simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love.”

-- John Ortberg in The Me I Want To Be
