Eating into the very soul of the Bible

I’ve been reading Derek Thomas’s chapter “Expository Preaching” in Feed My Sheep (gen. ed. Don Kistler) with profit. I was struck by a quotation from Spurgeon that he quotes from Stott on page 92:

It is blessed to eat into the very soul of the Bible until, at last, you come to talk in Scriptural language, and your spirit is flavoured with the words of the Lord, so that your blood is Bibline and the very essence of the Bible flows from you.
