Why Read the Bible (2)

If a child does not grow physically, the parent realizes something is wrong. The parent becomes troubled, distraught. Have you ever wondered how, as Christians, we disappoint God when we fail to grow?

Peter wrote, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” (I Peter 2:2). Too often we limit the application of this verse to newer Christians. But no Christian, no matter how long he, or she, has been a Christian, should ever lose the desire to grow. The desire to become more spiritually mature. It’s God’s word, the scriptures, the Bible, that makes this growth possible!
