Crave the Milk!

Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. (1 Peter 2:2, 3 ESV)

Have you tasted The Lord yet?

If indeed you were reborn (saved), then crave the pure spiritual milk of God's word. It's the only way to grow up into salvation since His thoughts and our thoughts don't match.  We need to be taught by Him.  We cannot figure out spiritual truths.  Nor can any human teach us spiritual things, only the Holy Sprit can.  

Let us receive His teachings with all eagerness.  The Holy Spirit can and does work through people and circumstances, so it would be wise to pay attention.  Then search the scriptures to see if those things are so.

Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. (Acts 17:11 ESV)

And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, (2 Peter 1:19

Have a blessed, truth-filled day!
