The slow walk to maturity — ABSORB the Word

Don’t just “read” the Word. Don’t just “study” the Word. As believers, we are invited into a level of engagement with the Scriptures that doesn’t have any other parallel. Why settle for so much less? 

“Christians don’t simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water, missions into all the world, healing and evangelism and justice in Jesus’ name, hands raised in adoration of the Father, feet washed in company with the Son.”
Eugene H. Peterson, Eat This Book: A Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading
