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.
As believers we need to desire the pure milk of the word. There are false teachers out there who will distort the word of God for their own selfish means. Many times they are driven by the love of money and will distort the word of God, appealing to the fleshly nature of people and be used by the enemy to deceive them.
We need to desire to move from the milk of God’s word to the meat of God’s word. As we grow in our relationship with the Lord we will come to a deep understanding of His word and who He is. This is a supernaturally process led by the Holy Spirit. As we open our hearts more and more our hunger for the Lord and His word will continue to increase.
It is through the study of God’s word on a daily basis that growth truly takes place in our lives. As our minds are renewed by the truth of God’s word, our lives are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Lord leads us one step and day at a time. He sets a table before us daily and bids us to come and dine upon the purity of His word.
