GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 1
GOD’S WORD FOR JULY1
IPeter 2:2-4 (Amp)“Like newborn babies [you should] long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may be nurtured and grow in respect to salvation [its ultimate fulfillment], if in fact you have [already] tasted the goodness and gracious kindness of the Lord.” The Holy Spirit through Peter is speaking to new Christians. That’s what He means by “If in fact you have tasted the goodness and gracious kindness of the Lord”, meaning His kindness in giving Jesus as a sacrifice. After salvation, one of the first signs is that we crave the Word of God, as a baby craves milk. We need to feed ourselves spiritually as a baby is fed physically or we will weaken and be drawn away by deception. We need milk, and then meat, to have the ultimate fulfillment of Salvation. (Hebrews 5:12) Please, Lord, send the right people to the needy and hungry ones, to show them how to go to You in humility, and how to study Your Word in order to get to that ultimate fulfillment. Please put Bibles in the hands of new Christians to satisfy their hunger, and to have them hear the voice of Your Holy Spirit to understand the milk, and move on to he meat of the gospel. Thank You and we Praise You for every step of the process of growing in You. Help all of us , both new, or more mature, have a great desire for Your Word. We thank You for Your Word readily available.
NOTE to reader: If you’re not sure how to be saved, and receive the promises in the Bible, feel free to message me, or talk to another true born again Christian. Jesus died for each of us. No one is excluded, no one is “too far gone”. He came to seek those who are lost, and, although He is fully God, He became man to suffer and die for YOU. But you need to accept this free gift. You can start by reading the gospel of John, and the epistles (Especially Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colossians) Go to Him sincerely, He WILL show you the Truth!!!
