Sweeter than honey

June 1, 2010

The law of the LORD is perfectreviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthymaking wise the simple.

The precepts of the LORD are rightgiving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiantgiving light to the eyes.

The fear of the LORD is pureenduring forever.
The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous.

They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.

By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Psalm 19:7-11

As I have grown in my own walk with the Lord, discussed His Word with other believers, taught the Scriptures to women, and sought to introduce others to the great adventure of studying the Bible through my blog, I have become convinced that many believers in Jesus, if not most, are missing out on the beautiful gift of knowing God’s Word.  Really knowing it. Searching through it as a treasure more valuable than gold, savoring it as a delicacy sweeter than honey, discovering that God uses His Word to give light to our eyes and revive our very souls.

When Teri Lynne and I began talking about Scripture Dig, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to be part of this project!  There are few things that thrill my heart like watching others get “hooked” on exploring and studying the Bible for themselves – seeing their eyes light up with understanding and a spark of excitement!

I am excited and humbled to be a writer for this site – I can’t wait to get to know you better and spend some time together in the pages of this living and active book that can change our lives forever.  I hope you will join the journey – and I pray that you will discover that you are being revived, becoming wise, finding joy, seeing more clearly, and treasuring what has become sweeter than honey and more precious than gold.

He is good!  His Word is rich and full!  Let’s dig in together.

See you soon!

    Surely the Word of the Lord IS sweeter than honey. No other thing on earth or in heaven is sweeter than His Word…the very Word of God. I’m so excited that you guys will be sharing your contagious hunger for more of His Word here. Sometimes we get lost in hoping that others will open the Word for us…not necessarily a bad thing, but there is something to be said for learning how to study for ourselves. ..and longing for more and more understanding.

    Thank you Kristi!
