“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good” (2 Peter 2:2-3).
As the mother of a one-month-old, this verse has new meaning. Every time baby Jane wakes up, she cries for milk. She needs to be fed, and enjoys being fed.
It reminds me of when I was a brand new Christian. I couldn’t get enough of the Word of God. I would read and read and pray and worship and never got tired of the Lord’s presence. I craved it every time I woke up, and never wanted to go to sleep without it. Even in my sleep the Lord was there, and still is to this day.
Do you crave the Lord in such a way? Do you hunger and thirst for him at every waking? Do you long for him throughout the day? Do you go to bed in his presence, and always satisfied after a day dwelling there? Do you want to?
Taste and see that the Lord is good!
