The Bible is a Menu

Jack DeereNormally, one of the first things you learn when studying a foreign language is the menu of that country. Ordering food is a basic necessity of life. In much the same way, the Bible is the menu of the Holy Spirit and the explanation of his language. The Bible not only tells us the various ways in which the Holy Spirit will speak to us, it also tells us the very things we must eat if we are to live. And it warns us of spiritual poisons. No one who purposely avoids the Bible is ever going to hear God reliably and consistently.

There are people, however, who devote themselves diligently to Bible study and are still spiritually malnourished. This frequently happens in environments where people make Bible study an end in itself. They are like people who study a menu with great precision and can tell you every detail about it: when it was first written, how it has changed over the years, how each dish is prepared, how it ought to be served, which food should come first–even why the chef has organized the menu in its present order. Perhaps they even went to schools whose major goal was to explain menus. When they graduated, the ones who were the best at explaining menus were able to build the biggest “menu clubs” where many people meet regularly just to hear a new and inspiring explanation of the menu. Yet no one grows strong from an explanation of the menu or even from first-hand study of a menu. Only those who order from the menu and eat grow strong. Don’t mistake the menu for the meal.

Jesus is the Bread from heaven. If our Bible study does not lead us to experience Jesus Christ, then it is leading us to spiritual malnutrition. The Bible is the menu meant to lead us to experience God in every facet of out lives. If we make Bible study our goal, we will end up just like the Pharisees who searched the Scriptures diligently but never came to Christ (John 5:39)1. They studied the menu regularly and religiously. But the never ordered. Never tasted. And that was both the irony and the tragedy. So close to the menu, yet so far from the meal.

Divine Inheritance

Pastor Kevin Campbell’s familyPastor Kevin Campbell

You are blessed. What will bring you in the days ahead it will be the things invisible. You can rely on them. When you don’t have anything to eat these invisible things can provide you food. You life is in the things Your Father says.

Today I want to talk about divine inheritance. To inherit something the one who gave it to you must die.

1 Peter 1. You are not forgotten, you are begotten.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1Pe 1:3-5 KJV)

You are kept by the power of God. Grace is power of God.

Testimonies come from tests.

Grace will come to you at revelation of Jesus Christ. The more you suffer the more you will understand what He went through to get you out of it. You have a way out of your suffering, He did not.

Don’t let anything in this world to take your inheritance from you. Lay hold of eternal life.
