There was a conference at church last week. My college age son loved the speaker the first night, but had a hard time understanding the speaker the second night.
I told him the speaker the first night served milk; the second speaker served meat. It was something you had to chew on.
1 Corinthians 3:2, “I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not yet strong enough [to be ready for it]; but even yet you are not strong enough [to be ready for it].”
We all like the sermons that are sweet and slide down easy like milk. But we need the sermons that are full of meat.
You process those sermons the same way you eat a steak:
- Take notes, so you can cut it into bite-sized pieces.
- Take one small piece and chew on it until you understand it.
- Savor the good things of God in it.
- Swallow it so it becomes a part of you.
What verse impressed you?
