Come and Taste that the Lord is Good!

Blue_Wildebeest,_NgorongoroI recently came across a website called “TasteAtlas.”  Refdesk.com describes TasteAtlas as “a world atlas of food and drinks, an encyclopedia of flavors dedicated to capturing the tastes and scents of every city and village.”  I enjoy eating food from other countries.  I remember how much I enjoyed the samosas in Africa and dining on a wildebeest steak!

When I came across “TasteAtlas” I couldn’t help but think of Psalm 34:8 – “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”  Peter wrote, “If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious” 1 Peter 2:3 (KJV).  In both cases the word “taste” is used figuratively as a synonym for “experience.”

Because I am a Christian I enjoy the blessing of salvation, forgiveness of my sins, the providential care of God and the hope of heaven.  I could go on and on but the “taste” of being a Christian is something that must be experienced to be appreciated.  Nothing tastes better than being a Christian!
