Exodus (Program#58) – The Function of God’s Word as His Living Word to His Loving Seekers

Have you ever wondered why to some people the Bible can be full of sweetness and satisfaction, even encouragement; while to others it can be quite the opposite – it may seem harsh, demanding or may be just boring. Even within a single person, it may be one moment the former and in another moment the latter. What changes?  Well, God’s word is eternally the same and it is His very breath. Whether we experience it as life or death altogether depends on us. If you’ve ever struggled to enter into the richness and sweetness of God’s word, please don’t miss this classical presentation on today’s life study of the Bible.

All believers have struggled with this matter at one time or another in their Christian life. Maybe the Bible was very living, very sweet when we first got saved. But then something seems to change and we can’t seem to get the same burst of spiritual energy or nourishment from simply reading and studying. This is probably very common for most believers. It doesn’t have to be this way. It’s not supposed to be this way. The reason it is this way is not by with the Word of God itself but with our situation or our condition when we come to the Word. We really need to come with a pure heart seeking the Lord, loving Him. We need to come with a heart turned to the Lord, open to Him. So we need to consider just what is happening in us and to us as we read the Word and what is the Word to us in our experience – is it merely letter that actually kills? or is it light and life and spirit and food to us?
