The Honeycomb

14 Apr

The Honeycomb…

Young honey bees stay in the hive while older bees bring back the nectar. As the bee matures, it starts going out to find the nectar for itself, from the source.

In this is a lesson about spiritual growth. When you’re young in the Lord, you receive much of your spiritual food from others; teachers, writers, friends, older more mature believers and that’s good.

But growing spiritually means that like the bee, you have to start getting the nectar for yourself. You need to deal with the Word of the Lord for yourself firsthand by going directly to the source.

Spiritual growth is about getting closer to the Source; moving from the outer courts to the Holy place. It’s not so much concerned with secondary things about God, but God Himself, to receive directly from His throne the riches of His mercy.

Learn from the bee, and more and more, go yourself. Receive the rich nectar of the Word, of His love, of His grace, of His presence for yourself. Go direct. Because your maturity and growth in the Lord is linked to one thing; you, going yourself to the source.

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? Psalm 42:2

Make it your aim to go to the nectar, the source, go directly into His presence and receive directly from Him.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
