Nurtured With Prayer

Ship sailing towards moonWhen an individual makes a commitment to follow Christ, it is just as if he or she were setting out on a journey. All of us have spiritual needs. It is the evangelist's job to explain to that new Christian what he or she will require on route. You might call these the necessities of the Christian Life. "Like our physical body, our spiritual nature needs sustenance too." Saint Peter wrote in 1 Peter 2.2, "Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good." Go to the Word of God, the Bible, and read it every day. Meditate upon it and ask God to speak to you through it. Beware of haphazardly picking at verses. Remember the story of the person who looked for guidance this way. The first verse he landed upon was from Matthew 27.5. It read, "Then, Judas went away and hanged himself!" "That can't be right," he said to himself and flicked the pages to another spot. "Go, and do thou likewise," it read to his horror! The Word of God will give you your spiritual needs and refresh you daily as you read it. I have found as my wife and I read the Bible a chapter at a time each morning, that the Lord has the uncanny ability to speak to our specific needs for each day.✞
