Where do we find nourishment for our soul?

July 9th, 2010

JOHN SHIRK-There is a redemptive purpose to the words that God places in our heart.  Isaiah 55:10 compares it to a weather scenario:

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

In the Bible, we hear God speaking.  His words nourish our soul like rain nourishes the soil.  That is where we learn about our need to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord. Through God’s Word, we are encouraged by His love, guided by His will, and warned of dangers by His wisdom.

By heeding God’s Word and applying it to our lives, we have the grace and truth hidden in our hearts to live a productive life that glorifies God.

That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.

    It is amazing to me how many people don’t value the precious Word of God that has been given to us as a gift from God to guide our steps, instruct, and encourage us. I used to be one of those people who never picked up my Bible to read it. It was in realizing how blessed I am to have a copy of the Bible – and not just one – that has helped me to want to read the precious gift more and more.
