“When the Lord your God enlarges your territory, as he has promised you, and you say, ‘I will eat meat,’ because you crave meat, you may eat meat whenever you desire.” Deuteronomy 12:20
“I will eat meat because I want to eat meat” is the general run of it. What freedoms the people enjoyed! God’s bounty, rich and free, reaching even the every day matters of food and drink. It is not perhaps so difficult to do to God’s glory when the choices of holy doings are so pleasant. Our first parents enjoyed the same: “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely.”
So eat meat to God’s glory. But in your feasting remember that true meat is set upon the table of his dearly beloved. Is not our Lord the True Food? Do we not have certain liberty to feast at this table whenever we wish? The truths of God are so many strengthening portions; take them as you please. Pick a doctrine, a Scripture, because you want to, and chew it by meditation. Draw forth its savory delight and heavenly virtue by prayerful contemplation. And know that when you say, “I will behold Christ,” because you want to behold Christ, that you may behold Christ whenever you desire.
