What happens in those who receive God's Word

"The one who finds the way of God must first lose all his own riches [not just money, but everything by which we measure our value or in which we take self-centered pleasure] in order to find all manner of riches. God's word creates joy and delight in the one who receives it. It is delight about restored fellowship with God. It is delight about deliverance from fear and sin. It is the joy of the one who had gone astray and, after a long night, has found the right way again." (Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his meditation on Psalm 119:14)
