Hello.. I look forward to seeing you all at Bronte tomorrow!
Have you ever thought about the cravings that we get – food we must eat, power we desire, possessions on top of our want list? We live in a society where what we crave, we strive to achieve, be it big or small. But how many times do we crave God’s Word?
1 Peter 2:1-3 (NKJV), “Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”
What does it mean to “desire” Him? Think about it as a craving – longing for God, urgently needing to speak with Him, desperately wanting Him in your life, filling that void that you might have. Just like how milk fills our physical needs, our spiritual life also is dependent upon having a relationship with our Lord, and what better way to get to know Him than through prayer and reading the Bible so we can aim to follow Him?
Think about your spiritual journey right now. Do you “got ‘milk’?” in your life? If not, crave God, and cultivate a relationship with Him, today!
Once you get a taste of Him, He’s so good, you won’t let Him go.
