Eat this Scroll (Ezekiel 3)

The word of God must be consumed. Ezekiel is told to eat the scroll. The scroll is as sweet as honey. There is something sweet about the Word of God. It gives us precious promises which are wonderful to behold. But always remember that there is also a bitterness to the Word of God.
9 So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, "Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey." (Rev 10:9 NAU).

To John the Scroll was also bitter. Much of what the Word of God tells us is difficult to practice.

The Word of God can be sweet in reception and bitter in application.
