Just as it is right for children to grow and mature, so it is right for the children of God to grow up in salvation. In order for this growth to take place, Christians must long for spiritual milk, which is the Word of God. In this sermon, Alistair Begg teaches that there is a taste that begins growth, obstacles that stunt growth, and behaviors that accelerate the progress of Christian maturity. Having tasted that the Lord is good, we must continue to crave pure spiritual milk and avoid watered down alternatives.
1So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 2Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— 3if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
