The five senses - TASTE "Taste and see that the Lord is good" (Psalm 34:8). Although the observant of you will notice that this verse actually includes two senses, I want to focus on taste. It’s not difficult to see that the Lord is good, but taste? We know that the Lord is good because he offers us salvation through baptism into Jesus even though we don't deserve it. But what does that have to do with taste? Before Jesus died he shared a final meal with his disciples, and commanded them to have bread and wine as a symbol of his death and resurrection. Every week as Christadelphians we follow this commandment by sharing bread and wine together. As we taste these seemingly ordinary things, we think of the extraordinary meaning behind them for our salvation. In the same way that we taste and eat the physical symbols of Jesus’ sacrifice, we learn to ‘taste’ through the experiences of our lives the way the goodness of God is providing for us - in bringing us to a knowledge of His word, His plan with the earth, His salvation from sin and eternal death. We taste that the Lord is good in giving his Son for us. What an amazing gift and something we should praise God for and respond in obedience to him. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son". John 3:16
