Topic: Junk Food (08/30/12)

Junk food contributes to heart

disease, diabetes, obesity and many

other diseases. Candy, potato chips,

cookies fill us up temporarily but

leave us hungry and empty after a few

hours.

The same can be said for our

spiritual diet. Today, we as

Christians fill up our lives with

voice mail, e-mail, twitter, facebook,

television, magazine, tablets and MP

players. Instead of desiring the pure

Word of God we settle for the world's

empty junk food diet.

Only when we stop seeking the milk

of the Word and desire the meat of the

Word, can we experience a healthy

balanced diet. Only with the meat of

the Word can be grow and experience

fellowship with God.

We must take time to study the

Word of God and not just rely on

Sunday's sermon to get us through the

week. We need to consult various

versions of the Bible, use a

concordance or Bible dictionary to

understand Hebrew and Greek words, view

the passage in context, review the

history and background of the book

and chapter, check the geographical

location and seek out key verses and

words.

Finally, we should create a

summary of the content of the chapter

and apply the Scriptures to our daily

lives. Without discipline and desire

for the Word, we cannot move from a

junk food diet to one filled with the

power of God's Word. Let's grow up!

You made some really good points in this mini-sermon. It is true that we can't feed our bodies just once a week on Sunday so it makes sense that our Spirit needs daily sustaining as well. Nice job.

A very good reminder. Thank you.

Your words are so true. I think sometimes this issue is glossed-over in church services and even Bible studies. We need to hear and understand the truth. Thank you.
