Alīpur “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby.” I Peter 2:2 It might seem strange to be commanded to earnestly long for something. But we need to be reminded of our need of spiritual nourishment. Even though we may have fed on the Word in the past, we need to realize that our need is ongoing and that without more nourishment we will grow spiritually weak. God is eager to feed His children. So, open wide! Neglecting the Word will famish your soul; meditating on the Word will feed it.
