The craving for spiritual milk is really gifted to His followers by the Lord – He knows that they will need Him – in toughest times it is feeding on the cream of spiritual milk. Life’s turmoil churns the spiritual milk we have held in our souls and the cream of comfort rises to the top. It is getting the rich stuff, not at the bottom of the barrel, but rising to the top when we slow down to let our turmoil settle – and the cream – yes the cream rises.
Our understanding and hungering for the Lord, in joy and in pain, is wanting to partake in pure spiritual milk, because we know that the Lord is good….
As we grow towards our salvation. Jesus rises us to the top. We are saved by Him and only Him. We are God’s children – He wants to nurture and nourish us here and forever…
“Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” 1 Peter 2
