Milk Does The Body of Christ Good

Spirituality isn’t for people who needs it, it’s for people who wants it.

It’s for those who’s tired of thinking the same, reacting the same, and being the same.

It’s a craving or a want to change, to grow up, to mature.

It’s for those who want to become more God-centered than self-centered.

When you start to grow spiritually you stop trying to control everyone around you.

You stop fearing the natural flow of life.

You learn to accept people for who they are rather you like them or understand them.

You learn being comfortable with being uncomfortable.

These are just some of the health benefits from drinking pure spiritual milk daily.

But just like everyone don’t like drinking traditional milk, everyone don’t crave spirituality or like drinking spiritual milk because of its distinctive after taste.

It leaves a nasty taste in their mouth when they can no longer blame other people or their situation for their problems.

That’s what living spiritual do to people, it makes them take a realistic look at themselves.

That’s what the Word of God does.

“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)

Everyone who read the Bible or go to church can’t taste how good the Lord is because they aren’t craving spiritual milk or change.

They try to rationalize His Word to fit their lives instead of changing their lives to obey His Word.

There’s a difference between craving pure spiritual milk and craving religion activities.

Children are immature and so are some adults.

Some adults find it hard to grow out of their self-center childish ways because spiritual they’re still children.

They think only about themselves and think that the world revolves around them.

They’re close-minded and self-righteous.

They make decisions on what they feel or think and not on what God says.

Growing spiritually is learning how to live again.

It’s allowing the Holy Spirit to influence your decisions and cooperating with it.

The Body of Christ needs spiritual strength.

Pure spiritual milk does the Body of Christ good.

Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor. (Matthew 5:3)

  1. A timely piece Vernon and a source of encouragement.

  2. Vernon I enjoyed reading your post. I always like when people use something as simple (like milk) in order to help us see that we as Christians can relate to how the commercials tells us that milk does the body good — but we also know that as Christians we can’t rely upon it as we grow in maturity. We must grow up and leave the milk alone and seek meat. It’s the only way to grow up spiritually.

  3. Vernon this is a great piece. It’s funny how you live with someone; share the most intimate parts of each other’s lives, yet not really realizing how utterly amazing that person truly is. I was blessed by this and I’m beyond proud of the man God is molding right before my very eyes. Love you babe!!

  4. This is true brother! You cannot eat unless you get hungry! Desire fuels the passion for spiritual growth. God hardly forces Himself on anyone.

  5. I really love this, Vernon. Thank you!
