RED MEAT

  “And He shall stand, and shall feed His flock in the strength of Jehovah, in the majesty of the name of Jehovah his God: and they shall abide” (Micah 5:4, ASV).

  To an overwhelming degree “we are what we eat”—spiritually as well as physically. “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by Thy name, O Lord God of hosts” (Jer. 15:16).

  “The best merely human literature that was ever written will not feed the new nature. You may bring the noblest thoughts which ever sprang from a human mind, you may couch them in the most fragrant rhetoric that ever distilled the perfume of literature in the book lover’s nostrils and you will not quicken a single pulse of the new and spiritual life. Shakespeare may analyze, Milton soar, Bacon lead us step by step up the royal stairway of induction to the throne of logic, yet not a gleam of light or pulse of strength will be added to the Christ within.” (hopefully your education can identify all of these great writers, that’s not sarcasm, it’s a lament about education and the illiterate pulpit.)

  “With God all is uncultured which is not in accord with the likeness of Christ—of Him in whose image man was first created. Christ is the typical Man, and all in our education which is not after the pattern, after His likeness, is uncultured—only a caricature. We have only that degree of culture which results from the measure in which the image of the Lord Jesus Christ has penetrated us.”

  “But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Heb. 5:14).
