The Bible is compared to gold and honey. “The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD are true and righteo right tous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb”
the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
Psalm 19:9-10 ESV
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalms 119:103 KJV
“Is not my word like fire,” declares the Lord , “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?
Jeremiah 23:29 NIV
The Bible is like a lamp: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Ps. 119:105; and see also v. 130 and 2 Pet. 1:19). The Bible is like food for the inner person. It is milk (1 Cor. 3:1–3; Heb. 5:11–13; 1 Pet. 2:2), solid food (Heb. 5:11–14), bread (Matt. 4:4; Deut. 8:3), and honey (Ps. 19:9–10).
God’s Word is also a mirror
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
James 1:23-25 ESV
This is a very important metaphor that I will say more about later. In His parable of the sower, Jesus compared the Word to seed (Matt. 13:1–9, 18–33). Paul wrote about the cleansing power of the “water by the word” (Eph. 5:25–26), a metaphor Jesus also used in the upper room (John 13:10; 15:3). Keep in mind that water for washing represents the Word of God, while water for drinking represents the Spirit of God (John 7:37–38). The Word of God is also a sword (Eph. 6:17 and Heb. 4:12). In fact, when the people heard Peter preach at Pentecost, they were “cut to the heart” by the Word of God
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Acts 2:37 KJV
THEREFORE LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD AS A REFLECTION OF SOULS REVEALED TO US, SO WE MAY WALK AND LIVE A LIFE WORTHY OF HIS ABUNDANT GRACE.
MAKE IT APART OF YOUR LIFE.
A VERSE A DAY IS AN EYERNITY TO HIS GLORY.
