"Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you man grow up in your salvation." 1 Peter 2:2, NIV.
When Jesus comes into your life you are born again and begin a new life. This new life starts out like an infancy. We need to grow, no one wants to remain immature,
- It is dangerous,
- It is foolish if you have the choice to grow and fail to,
- It is not God's best for you,
- It is not your best for those you interact with,
- And runs the risk of spiritual disaster.
To crave something is like an obsession; you feel urges for it, and you think about it always. When you crave something you want to experience it; if it is food you want to taste it, if it is an experience you want to have the emotional thrill of it. Christians need to have this type of craving for the things that make us grow spiritually.
|What makes spiritual growth.|
In its intended state milk is easy to drink, it is not cooked or chewed or forked- you just drink it. God's spiritual nourishment is similar, his word must be read or listened to. We must think about it often, talk about it, memorize it, and meditate on it, it is not hard we do not need to make it complicated.
Resolve to crave the spiritual milk of God's word. Begin by reading it faithfully and memorizing it. Find a place where it is taught purely.
