Delight > Duty
Adrian Rodgers once said:
“Discipline says I need to…duty says I have to, but delight says I want to!”
This is so true in regards to spiritual growth and finding delight in God’s Word. Every believer at some point in their life both discovers delights and neglects delight. There is a very thin line that is often blurred and crossed over, creating drudgery, duty and discipline of spending time in God’s Word…when all along, it is delight that truly drives us back to God’s Word.
Psalm 34:8 – Taste and see that the Lord is good….
We need to remember that taste and taste it again. We all have our favorite foods and our cravings that create hunger, desire and the drive to satisfy those cravings. The neat thing about delighting in God’s Word is that the craving isn’t satisfied, only the search for the craving is!
In this book, you will see what a saturated sponge of God’s Word looks like. Therefore, you will grasp and understand the joy of scripture, the delight in tasting the truth that can mend your soul and leave it longing for more. You’ll also see the healthy relationship between law & grace so that your delight is appropriately balanced.
These “31” books are brief but bold in the line of devotionals. Glenda Mathes knocks this one out of the park!
