When our diet consists of those things, it is like we are sitting at the banquet, but just eating the leftovers, cleaning off of their plates, or eating what our neighbors dropped on the floor. We have to eat from the Book ourselves. We have to learn to dig in. To study with just the help of the Holy Spirit. That is what our Churches need to be about, equipping the saints to dig. Otherwise, people will continue to starve at the banquet.
As Francis Chan asks, “Have you studied this book yourself?” I ask, “Do you know how?” Do you want some help to learn? If so let me know. I will be glad to give you a knife, fork, and spoon, and show you how to use them.
