During this time of year, we all look forward to the holidays because we get to feast on lots of delicious food! Each year, we gather around the table and we get to enjoy the food and fellowship with family and friends. It’s a time that we look forward to all year long. However, the one table that we should desire to feast from this holiday season is the table of God.
The Bible says that as Christians, we should long for pure spiritual milk, which refers to the Word of God. The Word of God fills us. Just like food is sustenance to our physical bodies, the Word of God is the sustenance that we need for our spiritual bodies. It gives us the strength to face the day-to-day challenges that life brings.
The holidays can bring on its own challenges. On Christmas morning, before my family and I feast at the table or open gifts, we take a moment to gather around the Word. We allow ourselves the opportunity to feast from His table so that we can find guidance, stability, and the opportunity to know Him more. When we read the Word, we also find that this is one of the ways that God chooses to speak to us. The Bible is not just filled with words, it’s living and active. It’s God’s personal utterance.
Matthew 4:4 Man shall not live by bread alone, but by…Word
1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of Word
Although the holiday season can be busy, allow God to fill you and speak to you this day. Set aside time to feast from His table, and you’ll taste and see that He is good!
