Swallowing the Word

If we only admire the food on our Thanksgiving Table it will never bring strength or life to the cells in our body unless we eat it and swallow it.

Likewise we do not study the Word to only feed our minds, but we must swallow it that the Seed of the Word might germinate in our inner beings becoming alive as we live it.

As the word exhorts us in Ezekiel 2:8-10:

“But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. And when I looked, behold, a hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein.”

According to Matthew Henry’s Commentary “to eat” in the verse above means “admit this revelation into thy understanding, take it, take the meaning of it, understand it aright, admit it into thy heart, apply and be affected with it.”
