One characteristic all children share is that they want to grow up-to be like big brother or like sister or like their parents. When we are born again, we become spiritual newborn babies. If we are healthy, we will yearn to grow. How sad it is that some people never grow up. The need for milk is a natural instinct for a baby, and it signals the desire for nourishment that will lead to growth. Once we see our need for God’s Word and begin to find nourishment in Christ, our spiritual appetite will increase, and we will start to mature. How strong is your desire for God’s Word?
Like newborn babies you should crave (thirst for, earnestly desire) the pure (unadulterated) spiritual milk, that by it you may be nurtured and grow unto [completed] salvation, Since you have [already] tasted the goodness and kindness of the Lord. [Ps. 34:8.]
1 Peter 2:2-3 AMP
Father I thank you for today. I pray that just like a newborn babe, I would crave after your word and recieve it’s life changing ability as I read. Let me not read for reading sake but truly be transformed through the word. I pray for others who are struggling with obedience, that the word would become so enriched in them, sin would have no place. Thank you for answering this prayer in Jesus’s name I pray. Amen.
