2 Peter 3:18
2 Peter 3:18
Are you hungry? Our cravings change depending on what we’re hungry for. Did you know that your spiritual hunger works much the same way? As newborns, we start out with milk but graduate to solid foods once we have developed enough to absorb it. From a spiritual context, if we don’t feed on the Word, our level of spiritual maturity won’t have a chance to develop and grow. As a believer, spiritual growth is essential in our daily walk if we intend to grow deeper in our relationship with Christ.
The good news is, spiritual maturity can be obtained by reading your Bible on a daily basis (Hebrews 4:12); praying (Ephesians 6:18); gathering together with other believers (1 Corinthians 5:4); and getting involved in a ministry to serve the body of Christ (Acts 6:3-4). God’s desire is that we would be filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God (Philippians 1:11). The more we feed on His Word and absorb it into our daily lives, the more of a hunger and craving we have for Him. After all, in about four hours you’re going to be hungry again for a taco plate with rice and beans. As you study God’s Word, may your relationship with Him be nourished and your commitment to Him strengthened. “So, as you daily walk with our Lord Jesus Christ, may you continue to grow in His grace.”
