My pastor in college taught me that if another man’s bullet fits your gun - then shoot it! So here’s a word from John Piper, a reliable Bible teacher...who has been reading his bible for a long time!
“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103)
Never reduce Christianity to a matter of demands and resolutions and willpower. It is a matter of what we love, what we delight in, what tastes good to us.
So someone may ask: How can I come to delight in the word of God? My answer is twofold:
1) pray for new tastebuds on the tongue of your heart;
2) meditate on the staggering promises of God to his people.
The same psalmist who said, “How sweet are your words to my taste” (Psalm 119:103), said earlier, “Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law” (Psalm 119:18). He prayed this, because to have spiritual eyes to see glory, or to have holy tastebuds on the tongue of the heart, is a gift of God. No one naturally hungers for, and delights in, God and his wisdom.
It’s a process. It’s something we learn to do! And this process will lead us to the greatest joys we can ever experience here in Earth!
