1 Peter (Program #11) -Growth in Life and Its Results (1)
What is it to grow spiritually? Well, many think that to grow as a Christian is simply to acquire more Scriptural knowledge through diligent study of the Bible. But genuine spiritual growth as apostle Peter indicates in his first epistle, is to take the word of God not merely as doctrinal knowledge but rather, as food as nourishment. In fact he likens nourishment in the Word to milk, nourishing a growing infant. This picture in 1 Peter confirms the genuine growth in the Christian life is organic and not academic.
We have been regenerated with a divine life of God. And just as new born babe, our first requirement is to take the real nourishing supply so this divine life can grow within us.
