Ok ok - I know that was a pun....but when you get more gallons of milk that you can hold in your refrigerator and freezer, and your brother's refrigerator and freezer...then I believe that we can call this "spiritual milk"!
The Lord has provided once again and we are very excited about being able to take this milk out and use it to bless His people....so out we will go again tonight to deliver bread, milk and cherry tomatoes - and it will be our pleasure to explain to our friends that the Lord has provided this milk for them. It was not our doing....it was all His blessing.
When I got the call from Dean just a bit ago that we had received all this milk it led me to immediately go to http://www.biblegateway.com/ (my favorite internet Bible site) and search for instances of "milk" in the Bible.
I saw the reference in 1 Peter 2 for "spiritual milk":
1 Peter 2
1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
What a wonderful reminder that as newborn babies crave milk - we are to crave the purity of God's Word and His Spirit. That is how we are to mature in our salvation....in Christ....by nourishing ourselves with Him.
Dean and I have definitely tasted that the Lord is good recently...and in return we will do what His Word says....and that is to crave His pure spiritual milk.
Living Radically Through Christ,
Please continue to pray for our blessed little ministry. Please pray for us tonight as we go out to deliver these items. Please pray that God will allow this to build the trust and friendships necessary that will allow us to share the Gospel.
