Eat This Book
This little phrase is pulsating through my mind as I try to digest the power of God’s book and allow him to shape me as a human, a man, a Christian, a husband, a father and a pastor. How does the Bible shake me to its core and transform me to be a new being. This is what Peterson is writing about and I hope to digest it further in the next week or two.
Last week, I found myself thinking about this phrase from Isaiah and Revelation as I also was reflecting on high school students from our faith community that will soon be graduating and moving onto college. I find myself concerned that they have no idea where to begin when it comes to God’s book and how God desires to shape us through it. I am concerned about students who don’t know this book that God speaks through. How do we challenge them to eat this book as we are challenged to do the same?
I long to eat this book as Peterson puts it. Until next time…
