TODAY'S MANNA for Thursday Mar 31, 2016
Is your salvation growing?
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.
1 Peter 2:2-3 New International Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Salvation is a most precious thing! But like a newborn baby needs it's mother's milk, we need pure and wholesome Spiritual teaching (food for our spirit man) from our Father through the Word of God, so that we can grow and mature in the spirit. We need Godly teachers, Pastors, that teach the ‘pure’ Word of God, not some seminary garbage. Without this Godly teaching we will stay in the same place we are and not grow. But if we stay in the same place spiritually and do the same things we did when we were newly saved we are not growing and maturing. We have to grow spiritually! Read and meditate Hebrews chapters 5 & 6 and see what God has to say about remaining immature! We must really want to grow. We must crave what is good and what builds us up from God's Word. Now go and read and meditate Galatians chapters 3 & 4 also. We must get a hold of all that is included in the salvation package. Salvation is not just going to heaven when you die. Salvation is a total package deal! Get out your concordance and look up salvation in both the Hebrew and the Greek. It includes health, prosperity, well being, peace of mind, deliverance, as well as eternal life and it's for now, not for when when we get to heaven. "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." We are to have Heaven on earth. What are you going to do about it today to satisfy your spiritual appetite? The choice is yours!
Mighty God, thank You for loving me, saving me, and making me a son and an heir. I really want to mature in Your Love and Grace. Bless me today as I seek to pattern myself after Your Holy example, Jesus. Father, increase my territory and my influence, that I may share Your Gospel with all I come to know. Help me Father to fill myself spiritually with the things that will help me grow. But Holy God, I know that true growth comes only from and through You, for You give the increase. So I ask You to strengthen me by Your Holy Spirit as I pursue Your character. Through Jesus' mighty name
