1 Peter 2:2 KJV As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
Joy fills the heart of the people when a child is born. Excitement makes people want to carry the baby.
In fact, if a child is well-fed and looks good. People will want to carry the baby with them to wherever they want to go. They will be proud of the baby.
Just as everyone is happy for a newborn baby, the heavens rejoice over a sinner that is saved.
It’s been advised by health professionals that breast milk is the best for a baby. So, as a born again Christian. We have to desire the sincere milk, the undiluted milk of the word of God. As the two breasts of a mother nurture a child, so also is the Word of God. The two breasts of God are the Old and the New Testament. It is the best and sincere milk that help us grow. Any other milk will purge you. Babies purge as a result of feeding on the alternative to natural milk. Our natural milk is the Word of God.
Whenever a baby is hungry, anything becomes food. Anything that finds it’s way into the mouth of the baby is assumed to be food. That’s why you have to be careful about what you consume as a Christian. You have to be careful with adulterated Word. You have to be careful of Junks because it will deprive you of growth and will also harm you.
When a child refuses to feed on the milk for sustenance, there is danger looming. It’s a serious issue when a Christian find it difficult to study the Word of God. You should know that the devil is trying to deprive you of growth. The devil knows that you’ll be a threat to him if you know the Truth. So you have to be determined and also ask that the Lord help you with your determination. Set up a goal and follow it.
The Old and the New Testaments are needed to balance our growth in Christ.
Let us pray: Father, remove the veil of darkness that has deprived me of studying your Word in Jesus name.
