Just Try It! I Guarantee Your "Taste Buds" Will Love It!

When we see all this food we are probably either thinking of how good it would be to eat that all right now or what we could possibly make with it that would taste good to us (unless you just ate and if that's the case just play along for example's sake). Some things we would all agree on being good and others might be kind of "iffy" since we haven't tried those things before.  Usually when we see or hear of something that doesn't look so appealing to us or if we just have never tried it before we will automatically turn up our noses at it without ever even giving the food a chance for us to begin to like it. A lot of times you will find that the food you just turned your nose up at is something you would have actually liked had you actually taken the opportunity to try it.  Now I'm not trying to convince you all to go eat some chicken livers or goat brains - and if you actually like those things more power to you - but I'm saying just because something is "NEW" to you, that doesn't mean that you won't like it or you shouldn't at least try it.
"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him." Psalm 34:8
For some of you God is something you have never "tried" or "tasted" and never will because He's something "new" or "unappealing" to your spiritual "taste buds".  In the Bible we see that Jesus told us that He is our bread from heaven in John 6:32-35 -
"32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."
and in John 1:1 and 1:14 we find that Jesus is also call the Word of God:
1)In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14)And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
so that would mean that God's Word is also "Bread" to our souls and something that we can "taste" for ourselves. Taste means to try or test the quality of something. Psalm 34:8 says those who trust in the LORD will be blessed. To trust in something means: to rely upon or place confidence in someone or something; have confidence in; rely or depend on; believe. So by trusting in God and his Word we will be blessed and able to "taste" the Word and see for ourselves that it's good and will find out that it will never fail us, go bad or out of date, and will never run out like any other bread out there.  God's Word/Bread will never go stale or be lacking in flavor and you will never have to worry about being hungry after eating it; it will always leave you full and satisfied it you will just be willing to "taste" it for yourself!
