A Hearty Appetite
A few years ago I had the privilege of accompanying Dr. Dwight Pentecost to Israel. Dr. P is famous at Dallas Seminary for his course on the Life of Christ. We were in Israel to video tape him teaching his course on location. Of all the lessons he taught there, the one that has stuck with me the longest didn’t come from a Bible passage. What struck me was how hungry this 80-year-old man still was for the Word. “Yearn like newborn infants for pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up to salvation.” (1 Peter 2:2) God grant that the older we get, the hungrier we become for His word.
