And they shall not teach every man . . . his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest of them. Hebrews 8.11.

Sugar and salt look alike. They are both white and fine. But wait until they come to your mouth, and then you know which is sugar and which is salt. To know sugar and salt externally with the eyes is far inferior to knowing internally by tasting them with the tongue. So too is the knowledge of God. The knowledge that comes to us from outside is only ordinary knowledge; the inward knowledge is the sure one. Whenever God gives us a taste of himself inwardly we will have joy unspeakable. “Oh taste and see that Jehovah is good”! (Ps. 34.8) Is it not strange that God may be tasted by us? It is nonetheless true: “For as touching those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift ... and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come” (Heb. 6.4, 5). This indicates that spiritual things may indeed be tasted. Thank God, the characteristic of the New Covenant is in letting us taste spiritual things, yea, even God himself. Oh what blessing; and how glorious it is. Hallelujah!
