SNACKERS

 
"Blessed are You, O Lord; teach me Your statutes." —Psalm 119:12
 

Even though Jesus wanted to spend time alone with His apostles, He gave up His plans and taught the vast crowd at great length (Mk 6:34). He was so overwhelmed by the masses of people that He could not even eat (Mk 6:31). However, Jesus felt it was more important to teach at great length.

We probably don't have the same priorities as Jesus. We are spiritual snackers. We usually don't pray at great length. Most of us rarely spend one hour with Him. We don't study the Bible at great length. But we're content to read a little here and there. We usually don't minister to God's people at great length. Many will help out on a specific project, but make no long term commitments.

Snackers are usually not healthy. We need to eat something substantial to grow physically strong. Likewise, spiritual snackers are not healthy and don't mature. We will never receive some revelations unless we give ourselves time with God, substantial Bible reading, and deep personal involvement in ministry. Make time for Jesus. You'll never regret it.

 
Prayer: Father, may I mature and not stay a baby Christian. May I move from a spiritual diet of milk to solid food (Heb 5:12-14).
Promise: "Give Your servant, therefore, an understanding heart to judge Your people and to distinguish right from wrong." —1 Kgs 3:9
Praise: Robert has grown from a "cafeteria Catholic" to feasting daily on the Eucharist.
 
(For substantial Bible reading, read the Bible daily. For encouragement, order any or all of these audio or video tapes: Ignorance of Scriptures is Ignorance of Christ, AV 82-1, V-82. How to Pray the Bible on audio AV 82-3 or on video V-82. How to Read the Bible on audio AV 46-3 or on video V-46. Principles of Bible Interpretation, audio AV 79-1, video V-79.)
