A few days ago I went to Best Buy and got a new phone. I am now the proud owner of a new iPhone 6. I have a lot to learn! Though it has many basic similarities, it also has a lot more bells and whistles than my old iPhone 4. Though I am still very much in the discovery process, I realize I’m not using it to its fullest potential yet. Yes, I can make phone calls, texts, play games and surf the Internet but there’s so much more it can do that I haven’t tapped into yet.
I was thinking that many of us do the exact same thing in living for Christ. We experience his blessings, but not to the fullest. We live for him, but at only a fraction of our potential. We know him, but we still have just a very small view of the totality that is our great God!
If you’re like me, and you don’t want to just settle – then this verse is for you:
Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment… 1 Peter 2:2
Did you catch it? The key to experiencing the fullness of our salvation – all that God wants us to see, hear and know is found by us nourishing our spiritual lives on the word of God – the “pure spiritual milk”.
Let me encourage you to take time each day to read your Bible. Develop a real hunger for it. Only in this way will you maximize your Christian experience.
