“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.” 1 Peter 2:2

Newborn babes in faith must not self-conceitedly be desirous of high things and strong meat. Such is not the way by which they are to grow in grace and advance from strength to strength. Such have more need experimentally to understand the first oracles of Christ and taste the milk and the saving power of the gospel. This would best make them grow in grace and wean them from the world.

A sucking child esteems nothing else in comparison to its mother’s breast, and those that delight more in lofty imaginations than the Bible do not proceed in a right spirit and will. Therefore, they find it necessary to retrace their steps and learn over again the first principles of religion.

The nearer Christians approach their end and desire to be duly prepared for Heaven, the more they walk in deep humility and godly simplicity, placing themselves on the lowest bench of weak and little children. Thus they become the fittest vessels of grace, and they will certainly be enlightened and have the mystery of Christ revealed in their hearts (Matthew 11:25).

The lower we lie before God, the more we receive from Him, and the more we become like Him.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
