“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow thereby.”

 1 Peter 2:2

When we were born into this world as newborn babies, one of the first food that we were fed with was milk. Usually the newborn baby is either breast-fed by the mother, or bottle fed with milk. The reason why milk is fed to newborn babies is because it has some good nutrients for the body such as vitamins A,C,D, proteins, carbohydrates, iron, sodium, and many other good nutrients that is good for the body. Milk is a good drink because it builds up the body and helps it to grow stronger.

Just as a newborn baby is fed with milk to help them to grow, God has some milk, some spiritual milk that He wants his children to drink and to grow up on. And the spiritual milk that God wants His children to drink and to grow up on is the Word of God.

To grow in the grace and in the knowledge of God, we must have a desire to drink from the Word of God because 2 Timothy 3:16 says that “All scriptures is given by the inspiration of God, and it is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” If we want to grow in Jesus Christ, we must desire the Word of God.

You see, it is God’s will that you come to know Him personally and that you learn how to live for Him according to His Word. God does not want you ignorant of His Word. He wants you to know His Word. Before we read and study the Word of God, we should always pray first, asking God to give us the understanding of His Word. We should ask God to open up our understanding, ask him to help us to see the reality of His Word.

Even though we as Christians are admonished to study the Word of God, that does not mean we should stop going to church, to Sunday School, to Bible Study to be taught and learn the Word of God.
