MEMORY VERSE:

Today's Text:
Revelation 10:1-2,8-12

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Romans 8:1-21
Genesis 20-22

MESSAGE:

God's Word is life. Jesus says, 'I am the bread of life' (John 6 : 48). Ourbodies need physical food to survive. Our souls/spirits need God's Wordto have a balanced spiritual growth. "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God"(Matt. 4:4). Apostle Peter enjo ins christians to desire the"pure milk of the word" to enhance spiritual growth (1 Pet. 2:2).

In our text, John had a vision. In that vision, he saw a "Mighty Angel" who
descended from Heaven with a little book (scroll), (v2).'The content of the Little book is not explained. However, the book contains much that concerns the future of the world. John was instructed to "fake and eat it"(v9). He took and ate as
instructed. It tasted "sweet as honey in his mouth...(v10).

The act of eating the book or scroll by John symbolises absorbing the content or
message of the book-God's Word. Believers must STUDYING God's Word for spiritual
nourishment(Psa. 11911:105; 2Tim. 3:16-17). True spiritual nourishment comesas we feed on, and digest the Word of God.

There are numerous benefits in absorbing God's Word. The psalmist describes God's word as:

Sweet as honey (Psa. 119:103)
Perfect, reviving the soul (Psa.'19:7)
Trustworthy and making wise the simple (psa.19:7)
Eternal (Psa.119:89)
A light to our feet (ps. 119:105)
Read God's word today for your spiritual nourishment. Read it to build your faith.(Joshua1:8). How about making a commitment to follow our Bible reading plan so you canread through the the whole Bible this year?

CONTROLLING THOUGHTS
Genuine spiritual growth is centered on regular feeding on God's word.

PRAYER
Oh God, help me to desire your Word the same way my physical body hungers for natural food. Amen
