Seeing life being birth is a beautiful thing; it is a state of purity in its truest form. A baby is comforted and loved by its parents and will feed all day. If a mother decides to breastfeed; it’s said that breast milk is the perfect food for a baby’s digestive system. It contains vitamins, minerals, and antibodies that help protect infants from a wide variety of infectious diseases. Babies will need to be fed every 2 or 3 hours in the first few weeks and should be nursing 8 to 12 times per day.
Now, why is this important for Christians to know? In 1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV) it says “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”.
When you first received salvation, there was a particular sermon or person that gave you a desire to want to obtain more knowledge and information (vitamins and minerals) about Christ, and you digested the information given to you and decided to take that next step and give your life to Christ. Hallelujah! And just like babies are fed numerous times throughout the day because they are constantly hungry, so are many of you out there. Hungry to know more about the Lord, hungry to apply his word and hungry to tell others about your testimony.
We used the term “Starving Christians” for the title of this blog because “Starving” means to suffer or die from extreme or prolonged lack of food. A “Christian” is a person professing belief in Jesus as Christ or following the religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus. If we do not feed ourselves daily with the word of God our spirit man becomes weak; inabiling us to protect ourselves from spiritual warfare. And if we stay away from the word for a prolonged period of time the enemy will attack us (infectious diseases) so much that eventually, as a consequence of this; that our spirit man will die.So as babies grow they begin to eat much more; and as we grow in our Christian walk with God our hunger for God grows as well.
Our blog will feed you daily of God’s holy word, where our mission and prayer is that you will be able to dissect and digest in your studies about God and fully comprehend the foundation of what it means to be saved, about God’s grace, walking in obedience, and so much more! God Bless You!
