Years ago, I went to a conference where Louie Giglio held up an apple and took a bite. “Taste and see that the Lord is good,” he said (Psalm 34:8). I don’t know how he made that apple look so delicious, but he made me hungry for an apple with just one bite. As the week went on, I grew hungry for God, too.
The illustration stuck with me through the years. God needs to be tasted and proved in an intimate way. We can’t just say that we know Him; we must taste and see that He is good.
(On a random note: as I was googling around on this topic, I found that Louie Giglio still preaches on this verse. He’s just changed the apple for a Krispy Kreme. Watch it here.)
