PURE MILK OF GOD’S WORD! – 1 Peter 2:2 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


1 Peter 2:2 – Devotional

1 Peter 2:2

“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.

I recall watching our grandchildren tasting their first solid food. It brought back many memories when our three children tasted their first solid food. As I recall it was always mashed potatoes and gravy that I slipped into their eager mouths.

I had copied what I had observed my dad frequently do. It was usually the men in the family who did it. It was never my wife or mom who did the sneaky deed. My wife, Joyce, or my mom would chastise us, but it was fun anyway!

It is humorous to talk about our babies needing their solid food, but all too often we have huge congregations of believers who still exist on predigested spiritual food instead of sinking their teeth into something solid by devoting quality time in the personal study of God’s Word.

As you honestly evaluate your spiritual life, where do you see yourself? Are you able to dig into the solid meat of God’s Word or is it necessary for you to have someone else feed you? It is time for us to grow up!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
