Therefore, grow up.


Day #6: Therefore, grow up.

Further up and further in: Psalm 119, Isaiah 26:3-4, Ephesians 4:11-16

1 Peter 2:2 – Like newborn infants, desire the pure milk of the word, so that you may grow up in your salvation.

Lord God, you never want to leave me in the same place in my walk of faith. You take me just as I am, but you never leave me that way. While my salvation is full and complete, my sanctification and walk of faith is incomplete and ongoing. Give me the same craving, yearning and longing for the good food of your word that a new-born baby has. When they’re hungry, they’re hungry and only food will quiet their rumbling stomach. Give me the same craving and yearning that a newborn baby has so that every day, every week, every Sunday, I might long for the food of your word. And by that Word, dear Lord, grow me in my faith just as you do with little children. Grow me up and keep growing me up in my faith until my final breath. Amen.
