Desire the Pure Milk of the Word

“as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,.” – 1 Pet. 2:2

Crave the pure, uncontaminated milk of God’s Word.

Desire God’s word like a newborn baby who cannot survive without his or her mother’s milk.

The word is our precious life source.

Are you thirsty?

Are you dehydrated?

Work Is It’s Own Reward

“Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. This also, I saw, was from the hand of God.” – Ecclesiastes 2:22-24

Anyone who has come home nice and worn out can attest: there is no sweeter slumber than rest after a good day’s work.

Work is a reward straight from the hand of God.

Fellowship in the Gospel

“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now,” – Phil. 1:3-5

What resulted in Paul’s joy? Their fellowship in the gospel.

If the gospel is not being preached, how can there be any joy? There can be no joy without the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Grace, Love, and Communion

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” – 2 Cor. 13:14

This is a blessing (divine empowerment).

Note: there is no tentative “may” at the beginning.

Grace, love, and communion IS with us all.

The Spirit Yearns Jealously

“Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”? – James 4:5

God does not want to share you with anyone else. An unfaithful bride would be such heartache, yet far too often, that is exactly what we are.

The Holy Spirit within us yearns jealously.
