Are you feeling hunger pangs for truth? Are you feeling like you’re not getting the whole story? Then I have a book for you! You may have heard of it. It’s called the Bible.
I must warn you, though, reading the entire Bible and taking it ALL to heart is not an easy task. However, it’s necessary in recovering the heart of the Christian faith. The writer, Timothy Keller explains that the “gospel is not the ABC’s of Christianity, but rather the A to Z.” This means we need to read and understand it in its totality.
Now, we may claim to understand the gospel, but many of us are merely taste-testing the more palatable and easier-to-swallow portions of it. You know, the feel-good parts.
As in the case of many user manuals, many problems arise because we’re not using or gaining a deeper understanding of this Universal Manual. Through reading and meditating on the Bible, we can profoundly shape our thoughts and feelings toward God and each other. It’s the starting point of every significant relationship we have.
So, if you are feeling hunger pangs for the truth and a desire for a fuller significance in this life, I encourage you to read God’s word and let it nourish your spirit.
