Spiritual Nature

Ship sailing towards moonWhen an individual makes a real commitment to follow Christ, it is just as if he or she were setting out on a journey. They have certain spiritual needs. It is the evangelist's responsibility to tell that person what he or she will require on route. You might call these the necessities of the Christian Life. "Like our physical being, 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 the Bible. Remember the story of the person who worked this way. The first verse he landed upon from Matthew 27.5 said, "Then, Judas went away and hanged himself!" "That can't be the guidance I need," he said to himself and flicked the pages to another spot. "Go, and do thou likewise," it said to his horror! The Word of God will give you your spiritual nature needs and refresh you daily as you read it.
