You can't make it without food physically or spiritually. It is one thing to starve the body; it is another thing to starve the soul. If you are so overloaded that you are neglecting to feed from the Word of God, then you are suffering from spiritual malnutrition and you will spend the rest of your life spiritually emaciated, weak and lacking the spiritual nutrients you need to be spiritually healthy. In this message, Dr. Merritt details the importance of God's Word as daily food for the soul, and how God's Word will shape your life toward Christ as you read, study and follow its teachings.

"Before we can come to the Bible and understand it and get from it what we need to get, we must first of all lay aside anything that would hinder our relationships with other people. 'Malice' refers to bitterness, hard feelings, and carrying grudges. 'Deceit' refers to dishonesty, being two-faced, and having hidden agendas. 'Hypocrisy' simply means play acting, hiding behind a mask and pretending to be something you're not. 'Envy' is resenting what someone has and also resenting that you don't have what they have. 'Slander' is gossip and rumor mongering. If any of these things or all of these things are a part of your life, there is no need for you to come to the Bible. There is no need for you to open this book. You will be like a blind man trying to read fine print in a dark house." --Dr. Merritt
