Message of the Day: The Way to Grow is Feeding on the Word of God!

As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” (1 Peter 2:2-3, NKJV)

Christians have been born into a glorious inheritance by the Word of God (1:23). But travelling through this world toward their heavenly homeland, they need to feed constantly on God’s Word for nourishment, guidance, and strength. Thus they will taste and experience along the way that their Lord is by their side and is gracious, kind, loving, and helpful as He leads them onward (2:2-3).

We can show that we have received cleansing and been given new life, by acting with sincere love towards each other. This new life comes through accepting the gospel, and because the gospel is God’s word, not man’s, the new life is permanent. Things born of human origins die, buy things born of God do not.

Since we are to exercise love towards each other, we must remove from our lives all attitudes and actions that hinder love. We were born into this new life through the Word of God, and the only way to grow is through feeding on that same Word. (1:22-2:3).
