HOWDY! “Growing Up”


“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)
I believe too many ‘babies’ have been fed the wrong ‘milk’, don’t you?   I’ve heard about the ‘milk of human kindness’ all my life, but in retrospect, that IS not the milk that brings about spiritual change.  As a matter of fact, what the world really needs is not milk, but ‘water’.  “Living Water” that only comes by Faith in God’s Greatest Gift to mankind….Forgiveness of all sin through belief in the sacrifice paid for everyone by Jesus Christ.  The great hymn written by Robert Lowry years ago says it all: 

Here is the entire Hymn of  four verses of Pure Truth, copied from the Internet-

 

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

 Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
  Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my cleansing this I see—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my pardon this my plea—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Nothing can my sin erase
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Naught of works, ’tis all of grace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

This is all my hope and peace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

 Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
  Nothing but the blood of Jesus

And that’s what I get from My box of Chocolates.      AMEN
