Feed Me!

oct-13“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk.”  1 Peter 2:2 (NIV)

I went to Buffalo, NY, over Labor Day weekend to see my children and grandchildren, and most especially, my new grandson Tristan, who was born in June. That baby has the fairest skin and bluest pair of eyes I have seen. Oh, and he has dimples that show up on his cheeks any time he decides to display a gummy smile, which is any time when he is not trying to find solace at his mother’s breast. One who would not know better, would think that the poor baby was starving to death, as his cry for his mother’s milk was rather intense, strong, and somewhat unstoppable, unless, of course, mama made herself available to his demand.

In my early Christian walk, I was somewhat like Tristan, with my hunger for God’s Word. I had this unquenchable desire to hear more about Him and learn how to be a better child of His.  I wanted to be a good steward of the things (and the people) He had entrusted to me, as well as to hear the testimonies of others who leaned on their faith in God as a survival tool. My appetite was voracious, and I could never seem to get enough. As the years passed and I have experienced more of God’s power in my life, I have learned to discern what I need to stay well-nourished and strong in my faith. I have also always relied on other Christians in my life to help ensure I stay the course, as I have made myself available to mentor others in their walk of faith.

Some of those key ingredients for a strong spiritual life include trust in God, perseverance, obedience, submission to His will, prayer, and fellowship with other Christians (the church). Spending time in prayer and seeking the Lord’s guidance, fasting, and reading his Word help us to recognize that we need Him especially in order to overcome the difficult times we often face in life. And our family in Him helps to secure a safe environment for our growth.

As baby Tristan grows and starts to eat more solid food, he will no longer be so demanding on his mama, though he will still need his parents to watch over his diet to ensure he grows healthy and strong.  Likewise, we need fellowship with other Christians, which helps ensure that we have a balanced spiritual walk.

“Lord, may our desire to please You never be quenched.”
