The process of eating food and reading the Bible are surprisingly quite synonymous. Jesus was very intentional when He described the Word of God as the “Bread of Life” and is able to “quench our thirst eternally.” Pastor James Granger shares how the process of reading the Word begins with a hunger for it, then moves onto the “chewing”/processing, swallowing, and digesting of it all. We see that by taking in the Word of God, it is able to satisfy and fill us up in a way that food cannot.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
