In the same way that nursing infants cry for milk, you must intensely crave the pure spiritual milk of God’s Word. For this “milk” will cause you to grow into maturity, fully nourished and strong for life — especially now that you have had a taste of the goodness of the Lord Jehovah and have experienced his kindness.
1 Peter 2:2-3
A lot of people start new diets, new workout regimens, new habits, new hobbies, and new activities at the beginning of the year. I’ve been guilty of this as well. The problem isn’t in starting new things, it’s in sticking with them. This is what I’m most guilty of, finishing.
This year I wanted to start something new, again. But this time it’s different. I want new tastebuds.
Tastebuds? Yep. I need to dial in my diet so that I’m not offsetting my workouts. But, I also want to dial in my spiritual taste buds.
In the letters of Peter are written to churches in Asia. He encourages them to use their new tastebuds. These new tastebuds come from the pure and undefiled Jesus. No filters, additives, or preconceived ideas.
So, how do you get to taste the pure and undefiled Jesus? Prayer, worship, and the word. Ask Him where you had Him wrong. Ask Him what you’ve believed that isn’t correct. Ask to experience Him as He is.
