Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.1 Peter 2:2-3
Grow in the Lord
The best part of the Christian life is growing close to the Lord. Salvation is not the end for the Christian, but the beginning of a lifetime of growth. Sadly, some Christians never go beyond the beginning of their salvation. There must be a desire for growth. To repent means to turn away from sin. Repentance leads to salvation, so after salvation, there must be a continuous desire to change. When God does work in our hearts, we will desire more of him. We will not want to stay as newborn babies but instead will want nourishment.
So how can you continue to grow in the Lord? Meet with his people in Bible study and fellowship. Spend time in prayer, study the scriptures. Ponder them and keep them close to your heart. When you think about the words of God, you will long to know more and grow more.
A Prayer to Remember
I long to grow closer to you every single day. Lead my heart. Amen.
