KEY VERSEEzekiel 3:3 (God to Ezekiel)
“Fill your stomach with this,” he said. And when I ate it, it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.

I want you to ingest my word. Read it, receive it, think about it, talk about it, memorize it, write about it, share it, and sing it. Do everything you can to know me and my word. My word will give you and others life. When you eat it, you will be well fed. My Word and Spirit will equip you to live for me and serve me where I place you.

But watch your heart. Do not become so self-consumed that you grow lazy or indifferent to the needs of those near you or those around the globe. Don’t become intimidated by the challenge or task before you. I am allowing you to invest your life in souls—one thing that never fades or goes out of style. Do not fight me but surrender to me. When you do, you will find much satisfaction and fulfillment. Trust me. Open up yourself to me and follow me.

Eat God’s word by memorizing today’s key verse—or another of your choice. Internalize it, so you know it and can share it.
