ESSENTIALS: Crave Spiritual Food Pt. 1

Colossians 2:6-7 |
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

Psalm 42:1-2 | As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him?

1 Peter 2:1-3 | So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech. Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.
