1 Pet 2:2 “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.”
Someone sought counsel recently about an issue they were struggling with, and as I sat listening, I was thinking that I had been preaching a series about this very issue on Wednesday evenings just a few months prior. The problem is they only come on Sunday mornings. They could have saved themselves much heartache and problems had they been present to receive the wisdom of God’s Word.
How many people needlessly struggle in their lives because they only attend 1 service a week, missing out on all the spiritual nourishment essential for their spiritual growth that is being provided in other services. God tells us we need to desire (the word in Greek speaks of craving) the Word of God that we may grow. How’s your desire? Are you satisfied with 1 service a week? Or are you hungry for the Word so you can grow?
