Food for the Hungry

We may store our intellect with biblical knowledge; we may have the doctrines of the Bible, and the letter of Scripture, at our finger-ends, without having one particle of unction or spiritual power. We must go to Scripture as a thirsty man goes to a well; as a hungry man goes to a meal; as a mariner goes to a chart. We must go to it because we cannot do without it. We go not merely to study, but to feed. The instincts of the divine nature lead us naturally to the Word of God, as the newborn babe desires the milk by which he is to grow. It is by feeding on the Word that the new man grows.
