THE WORD DIET

“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” 1 Peter 2:2 NKJV

There is such a thing as growth in the Christian life. God expects every believer in Christ to grow, just as a newborn baby grows to become a toddler, an adolescent, and, eventually, an adult. This development is solely the result of God’s word and prayer. Today, however, we will emphasize God’s word.

After salvation, the next most important thing to God is that we grow in our faith. This is why God sent His Son to redeem man, as well as His word to help us grow in our faith in Him. This is because God desires that our walk with Him be fruitful.
When you lack knowledge of God’s word, you are unlikely to function effectively in it. As a result, we must pay close attention to listening to and reading God’s word (1 Timothy 4:12-13).

In our opening text, Peter uses the growth of a newborn baby, which is solely by milk, to explain what the believer must solely feed on in order to grow. When we were saved, we were like newborn babies in the faith, but we needed to feed on God’s word to mature. You do not grow through time; you grow through God’s word.

In His wisdom and love, God gave us men who will help us grow in the Faith by teaching His Word. Paul explains in Ephesians 4:11-14 that God gave us ministry gifts so that we can all come to know the son of God and become mature men. Every believer must seek out and attend a church where God’s word is sincerely taught. God intends for us to grow in our faith through the teaching ministry of men.

You must remember that the message of the scriptures is Jesus Christ as you study the word. They were written in His honor. As a result, studying the word teaches you more about Christ. As a result, you learn more about yourself.

This is because, through the revelation of Christ in our hearts, we discover who we are (Matthew 16:16-19). So spend a lot of time in the word, especially the Epistles, because they contain the revelation of Christ and the revelation of our reality in Him.

Do this: Make it a lifelong commitment to study God’s word. There is a lot to gain from it.

    One thing is clear in the book of Job: Satan is a key player in the world’s suffering. He desired to harm Job and was the one who carried it out, not God (Job 1:12,2:1-7). He was envious of God’s goodness in Job’s life, and he destroyed it all in one day (Job 1:6-11)!
