“Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation…” I Peter 2:2 (ESV)
We are in the middle of a series on the basics of the faith. If you are a new follower of Christ or have not quite crossed over that line of faith this series is perfect for you. Early on our journey with Jesus we should allow a foundation to be laid within our lives to help us grow in the future. For those who have been on this journey for a while the idea of returning to the basics may seem unnecessary or tedious. Peter encouraged the readers of his letter that we all are to crave pure spiritual milk like babes! Every last one of us. We do well to lay a good foundation and continue to feed our basic understanding of faith in Christ.
We also need to take others through the basics of the faith. This is called discipleship. Helping explain basic faith is not only needed but beneficial for those who are mature in Christ.
So, simply put… crave spiritual milk like a baby! Drink up! You and I need the nourishment it provides.
