Savor the Flavor Forever

Imagine being a disciple of Jesus.

You get to cruise around Israel with the Messiah for about three and a half years. And one day, you, two of your friends, and Jesus go up onto a mountain when suddenly, everything changes. Jesus is transfigured and shining in the light of his glory. Moses and Elijah–the heavyweights of the Old Testament–appear with Christ. The Father speaks from heaven. What an experience!

But check out what Peter (who was there at the Transfiguration) says.

“We ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts…”
2 Peter 1:18-19

We have an amazing treasure in the Scriptures, and I am learning this more and more as I study here at IBEX.

The Bible is so precious. It is better than gold and sweeter than a parfait. (By the way, I think parfaits may be the most delicious things on the whole planet.) Through its revelation, we can know God! We can know the eternal life and salvation that comes through Jesus the Messiah!

As Christians, we should cherish God’s word. We should read it and think about it constantly, so we might savor the sweet flavor of Scripture forever.

That’s all for now. Hopefully, I finish up the Shephelah Trip before we leave for the Negev this week!
