mmmm psalm 119 mmmm

I’m passionate about eating Asian food in Sydney because we have the best outside Asia!

There’s an enormous variety of authentic dishes to choose from:

  • Cantonese yumcha
  • Peking duck
  • Malaysian char kway teow & roti canai
  • Singapore noodles & chicken rice
  • Korean bulgogi
  • Thai green & massaman curries
  • Indian biryani & lamb korma
  • Turkish gozleme
  • Vietnamese pho

But there is something even more delicious!

Join a hungry Sydney Bible College student for a satisying meal!

Psalm 119: 97-105 (NIV1984)

Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.
Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.
I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.
I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.
I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word.
I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.

The writer of this psalm uses a food metaphor to describe the words of God
He hungers after the sweet delicious mouthfuls and craves for more
He is passionate about reading and meditating on the words of God
In Old Testament times, the words of God were the Law (the 1st 5 books of the Bible)
In the context of the New Testament, the whole Bible is God’s Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We can now enjoy both Testaments on our dinner table

How often do you read/eat the Bible?
We need to eat the Bible everyday just like we need food daily to survive
Without nourishing food we will die!
It is the same with God’s Word as we gain hope and strength for each new day
The last verse in this section uses a light metaphor to describe the words of God
The Bible shines a light in darkness so we can see the way forward

We are faced with so many daily decisions in life, how do you know which path to follow?
The answers can be found in the Bible

Bible College starts again in less than 3 weeks!
I can’t wait to get stuck in to the Bible and eat the delicious feast!

mmmm Bible mmmm
