John 10:10. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

When we are born we need nourishment to have life. The same is true when we are reborn into the image of God through Jesus, God’s Son. We get that nourishment through God’s Holy Spirit as we read and meditate on the Bible (God’s instruction manual), pray, meditate and listen to others share. Just like omitting a particular vitamin or mineral from our physical diet will stunt our growth, omitting any source God makes available to us for spiritual growth will stunt our spiritual growth. Our question is do we want to grow in our relationship with God or remain as babies trying to grow on infant formula? We must take time to feed and use our bodies correctly. Let us take time to feed and use what God has for us.
