蜂蜜是营养丰富的天然食品,富含各样维生素、钙、铁、钾、氨基酸及酵素类等多种营养成分。早在亚里士多德的年代甚至古埃及时期,就出现了有关蜂蜜的文字记载。数世纪来,人类利用蜂蜜来消炎、抗菌、治愈伤口。

食用蜂蜜多有裨益。蜂蜜有助于止咳,可治疗溃疡、调节肠胃,辅助治疗癌症和心脏疾病,提高免疫力,又能提升运动员的体能。

正因蜂蜜益处良多,所以上帝也鼓励我们多吃蜂蜜。

箴言 24:13  我儿,你要吃蜜,因为是好的吃蜂房下滴的蜜便觉甘甜。

然而,上帝指的只是对于肉身而言的实质蜂蜜吗?亦或是对于我们灵魂而言的灵的蜂蜜呢?在圣经中,上帝的话语被比作蜂蜜。

诗篇 119:103 你的言语在我上膛何等甘美,在我口中比更甜!

考虑到吃蜜的保健功能,就能明白“食用”比蜜更甘甜的上帝话语时,就能保持灵的健康,使信心得以成长。

罗马书 10:17  可见,信道是从听道来的,听道是从基督的话来的。

正如蜂蜜有助于对抗疾病,增强免疫力,阅读上帝的话语能增强我们的信心,并成为击退撒但诡计的武器。

以弗所书 6: 11-17 要穿戴上帝所赐的全副军装,就能抵挡魔鬼的诡计。 因我们并不是与属血气的争战,乃是与那些执政的、掌权的、管辖这幽暗世界的,以及天空属灵气的恶魔争战。 所以,要拿起上帝所赐的全副军装……并戴上救恩的头盔,拿着灵的宝剑,就是上帝的道

古代的奥林匹克运动员为了提高成绩,曾广泛食用蜂蜜。当代研究也证明,蜂蜜在控制血糖和促进康复方面,的确比其他糖类更胜一筹。像这样,灵的蜂蜜——上帝的话语能够加强我们的耐力,帮助我们完成通往天国的赛跑。

提摩太后书 4:7-8  那美好的仗我已经打过了,当跑的路我已经跑尽了,所信的道我已经守住了。 从此以后,有公义的冠冕为我存留,就是按着公义审判的主到了那日要赐给我的;不但赐给我,也赐给凡爱慕他显现的人。

今天您也食用灵的蜂蜜了吗?  😀

Honey is one of nature’s power food, packed with vitamins, calcium, iron, potassium, amino acids and trace enzymes. Documented as early as the time of Aristotle and the ancient Egyptians, people have been using honey for its antibacterial, anti-fungal and healing properties for centuries.

Honey consumption is known to provide numerous benefits. It acts as a natural cough suppressant, has the ability to reduce ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders, helps to fight against cancer and heart disease, strengthens the immune system and increases athletic performance.

This is why God also encourages us to eat honey since it is good for us.

Proverbs 24:13  Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste.

But was God referring only to physical honey for our bodies? What about honey for our souls? In the Bible, God’s words are compared to honey.

Psalms 119:103  How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Considering the many health benefits when we consume honey, we will also be spiritually healthy and grow in faith when we “consume” God’s words regularly, which are sweeter than honey.

Romans 10:17  Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Just as honey helps to fight against diseases and strengthens our immune system, reading the words of God helps to strengthen our faith. It is also a tool for us to fight against Satan’s evil schemes.

Ephesians 6: 11-17  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is… against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God… Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Honey consumption was common among ancient Olympic athletes in order to enhance their performance. Modern studies have also verified its superiority over other sweeteners in maintaining glycogen levels and improving recovery time. Likewise, spiritual honey—the words of God—helps to strengthen our stamina to continue running the spiritual race towards the kingdom of heaven.

2 Timothy 4:7-8  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Have you had your spiritual honey today?  😀
