Got Milk?

1 Peter 2:1-2, “Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.”
When a child is born, he or she is a human being to the fullest sense, yet his or her entire life is spent developing physically and emotionally as a human.
When you accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, you become a Christian; holy and blameless in God’s sight.  Your sins are forgiven, yet salvation is only the starting point in living a life of holiness.
As you grow in holiness you demonstrate to others your identity as a child of the King; a “holy one.”
We can not purify ourselves, however, in 1 Peter 1, he reveals that purification comes from obedience to God’s truth.
Growing in holiness should bring about the desire to drink the pure milk of the Word.  This will not only help you learn, but it will help you grow and become mature in faith.
Remember– God has already accepted you as His holy child.  But, growth as a mature Christian requires that you desire and partake of the pure milk of the Word!
