What's This?

R E S T.  Rest assured.

How does that word make you feel?  Rest…

Calm.

Peace. Do you feel His exquisite peace? I do.

Savor.

Savor is a verb when this word is used with an object.  Savor means:

·      to give a savor to; season; flavor.

·      to perceive by taste or smell, especially with relish.

·      to savor the garden’s odors.

·      to give oneself to the enjoyment of.

·      to savor the best in life.

Used with an object?  What, or more accurately, WHO is the object of my affection?  Jesus…

Do I savor the flavor of my life? I thought savor was all about food. Oh, Jesus is the Bread of Life! Join us as we learn how to savor our Savior.

To flavor or season…How is my life seasoned and flavored?

To relish…What do I relish?

To give oneself to the enjoyment of…What do I enjoy?

Savor…

His presence.

Oh!  Savior.  SAVIOR!  One little letter.  I. Savor.  Savior.

Yes, Lord, I savor my Savior.

The object of my affection.  Jesus.  Yes!  I submit to Jesus.  He suffered for me. He shed His precious blood for me. His resurrection shows me He is Your Divine Son, Lord. I choose to believe and accept Jesus as my Savior. Oh to be in His holy presence.

Yes, rest.  I must rest in His sweet embrace.  Lord, I savor being in the presence of Your Son, my Savior, Jesus.

Father God, thank you for sending Jesus, my Savior, for me to savor His divine presence.

Savor…

Proverbs 8:1-11 The Message (MSG)
Lady Wisdom Calls Out

Do you hear Lady Wisdom calling?
Can you hear Madame Insight raising her voice?
She’s taken her stand at First and Main,
at the busiest intersection.
Right in the city square
where the traffic is thickest, she shouts,
“You—I’m talking to all of you,
everyone out here on the streets!
Listen, you idiots—learn good sense!
You blockheads—shape up!
Don’t miss a word of this—I’m telling you how to live well,
I’m telling you how to live at your best.
My mouth chews and savors and relishes truth—
I can’t stand the taste of evil!
You’ll only hear true and right words from my mouth;
not one syllable will be twisted or skewed.
You’ll recognize this as true—you with open minds;
truth-ready minds will see it at once.
Prefer my life-disciplines over chasing after money,
and God-knowledge over a lucrative career.
For Wisdom is better than all the trappings of wealth;
nothing you could wish for holds a candle to her.

Do I savor the flavor of my life? I thought savor was all about food. Oh, Jesus is the Bread of Life! Join us as we learn how to savor our Savior.

9 thoughts on “How to Savor Your Savior

  1. “Taste and see that the Lord is good …” I love what the Westminster Catechism says, “The chief end of man is to glorify God AND enjoy Him forever.” We forget about the second part too often. Thanks for reminding us today.

  2. I’m watching carbs and everyone is talking about bread! But the only bread I fully enjoy with no negative side effects is the Bread of Life! Praise God.

    This post was refreshing.

  3. Thank you for such a thought provoking word! I am really trying to savor life right now. I have spent the last year in a tailspin trying to get my blog up and going. I had to pour so much of my time into it because I was so new to the process. However, this year, I want to savor my Savior. That rolls of my tongue so well! Thank you for the link up and for sharing your heart!!!

  4. One definition of sin that I’ve been pondering lately is this: “failing to savor God’s goodness.”
    Guilty!
    But your exhortation today is powerful motivation toward the right response to God!
    Thanks!

  5. #wordnerd! I wish I could include a photo in my comment. I made a little word art for my dining room that says Savor every moment. And savor is my 9 year old son’s new favorite word! Oh, yeah and as I’m typing this morning I’m eating a yogurt and on the inside of the foil lid was written, “Best Savored Slowly.” I guess I’m going to be doing some savoring today! XOXO
