And he said to me, “Son of man, eat what is before you, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the people of Israel.” So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat. Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth. Ezekiel 3:1-3 NIV*
In John’s gospel, (Chapter 1:1-3) we learn who the Word is, and in John 6:35 we learn who the Bread of Life is. What joyous satisfaction that meal brings.
As readers and writers, whatever literary dish we prefer to prepare or eat—and both the fiction genre smorgasbord and the non-fiction banquet offer vast, superlative choices—it’s good to know that the tastiest, healthiest, most nourishing and satisfying meals are served at the table of the Lord.
