As newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the Word, that with it you may grow.
1 Peter 2:2
The apostle Paul calls the Bible milk for grownups. Like mother’s milk, it’s the real deal. No other book can offer what it does-living words, life-giving words packed with spiritual nutrition. God’s Word offers healing for spiritual diseases like gloom, worry, despair, hopelessness, and loneliness. It puts the enemy in flight. It promotes the growth of courage, purpose, joy, and peace. It changes perspectives. It quiets anger. It helps us find God.
Pastors’ sermons, Bible commentaries, devotionals and worship songs are excellent ways to consume the Bible, but, we also need pure, unaltered servings: additive-free, opinion-free, raw scripture that lets God speak straight to us.
So, serve up some Bible in your day. See how it makes you grow.
