THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

The waitress brought the soup, but the customer noticed something
was wrong.

He asked the waitress, "Would you TASTE my soup?"
She said, "Sir, I cannot taste your soup!"
He said, "Please, Ma'am, just TASTE it!
She said, "Ok...give me your spoon."
He said, "EXACTLY! There's no spoon!"

LIGHT from the WORD.

I love that statement "O taste and see that the Lord is GOOD!"

"Taste" is a word used to describe a definite experience in our lives.
Once you "taste" something, it is distinctively recorded in your memory.
For instance, if I say, "apple," your mind instinctively produces a
picture of the apple, the smell of it, and the "taste" of it.
(Assuming you have tasted an apple!)

Those things that taste "good" to you are recorded in the desirable
section of your mind, and those things that don't taste good are
recorded in the NONdesirable section.

Again, assuming you have experienced it, if I say, "sulfuric acid,"
your mind recalls the experience and causes you to instinctively
draw back. desire to experience the smell or taste of it.


Now the word "blessed" in the second statement of Ps. 34:8,
means happy -- completely happy!

If you have "trusted" the LORD Jesus, then
you KNOW this earth is not your home.
You have "tasted" His salvation!!
AND:
You KNOW that your citizenship is in glory with Christ forever;
And you KNOW that when you die you will immediately go
to be with HIM!

THAT makes a Christian "BLESSED" or,
completely happy!!

Have you tasted Jesus?

Love ya!
