Word Of God

The slender, climbing, woody night-shade, with its red berries, has been called the "bitter-sweet," because when you chew its root it is first bitter, then sweet to the taste. The convicting Word of God may be very bitter to the soul at first, but afterwards it is sweeter than the honeycomb. To feel the sweetness of this divine root we must keep eating at it. "Thy Word was found, and I did eat it."
