THE SWEET TRUTH

Download Audio Version: bit.ly/aud1818

Revelation 10:10 (KJV)
And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.


While reading an online article on why bitter foods are good for the stomach, I learned that they help keep the body balanced, countering sluggishness that could arise from too many sweet things. And that they contain nutrients that stimulate the liver into producing bile for optimal digestion and detoxification.

Unlike some foods or pills that are bitter from the onset, to the spiritually healthy, God's word as food or medicine is sweet to taste and better when fully digested. It benefits one at every point in time: from its ingestion (head knowledge) to its digestion (heart conviction), there are blessings (Psa 119:103, Jer 15:16).

As one studies and meditates on the truth of God's word, he receives true life and spiritual enlightenment, which elevates him from just knowing about God's precious promises, to the euphoria of actually experiencing them (Psa 119:130, Jh 14:6, 2Cor 1:20, 2Pet 1:4).

Unlike the popular worldly saying that the truth is always bitter, we must know that each time we yield ourselves to sin, the truth of God's word at that moment, will be distasteful as it chastizes us. Nevertheless, it purifies and makes us truly free, that we might live spiritually healthy and happy lives (Jh 8:32, Jh 17:17, Heb 12:11)

Stay hungry for the truth of God's word, and as you feed on it daily, you will experience growth and a life of peace and vitality in spirit, soul, and body (Pro 4:20-22, 1Pet 2:2, 2Pet 1:2).
