Luke 1:3-4 I too have decided, after investigating everything accurately anew, to write it down in an orderly sequence for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may realize the certainty of the teachings you have received.
“My beloved, what joy it should give you to contemplate what the gospel writers have done for you! Following the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they set aside their own agendas to set down an account of all they had witnessed in the life, death and resurrection of Christ. This is no small thing. The Word of the Lord as set down in scripture is food indeed. Let your spirit feast often on the words of scripture, most especially on the meat of the gospels. For your spiritual hunger can never be satisfied. Let the Word nourish you and give you strength. There will come a time when you will be glad of it. My child, live in the Word and be free.”
Lord Jesus, your Word is my bread and meat. Fill me O Lord with every good thing, that I might be strengthened for what is to come. Amen.
