Psalm 119:103

Tom Harding

"How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"
Psalm 119:103.

David not only heard and read the Word of God, but he also feasted upon it in his heart and it was sweet and satisfying unto his soul. The Word of God is a bitter pill to the ungodly infidel, because he sees no beauty and glory in the revelation of Christ in it (Luke 24:27). However, to those who are called of God and enlightened by the Spirit, the Word of God is the heavenly manna (John 6:35) and the nourishment of the new man (2 Cor.5:17). Consider the following thoughts.

Now think about this! Is the gospel of Jesus Christ sweet unto me? Do the doctrines of the gospel offend me? Is the gospel a savor of life unto life or is it a obnoxious odor of death unto death (2 Cor. 2:14-15). To those who are perishing Christ crucified is foolishness (1 Cor. 1:17). However, to those that are saved, Christ is the power and wisdom of God (1 Cor. 1:24).
