Salvation is such a precious thing! However, we know something is horribly wrong if a child continues to stay in the same place in his or her growth and maturation. Arrested development in a physical child is the cause of great concern. Hebrews 6 reminds us that this is also true in our spiritual lives. God does not want us remaining immature! He wants us to continue to grow. Our Father wants us to crave what is good and what builds us up. So, what are you going to do today to satisfy your spiritual appetite and grow in the Lord?
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
— 1 Peter 2:2-3
Dear Lord, thank you for loving us and saving us. We really want to mature in your grace. Bless us today as we seek to pattern holy habits and fill ourselves spiritually with the things that will help us grow. We know that true growth comes only from you, so we ask you to strengthen us by your Spirit as we pursue your character. In Jesus' name. Amen.
