The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Christian Today
The Bible tells us that there are two kinds of spiritual food that Christians eat: “milk” and “meat” or “solid food,” both coming from the Word of God. What’s the difference between them? Like full meals, can’t we have both of them at the same time?
New Christians are often called “baby Christians.” Frankly, it’s not about the length of time a person has been a Christian that defines their being a “baby” or not, but rather their maturity. And in the same way a child’s food changes as they grow, so does the spiritual food a Christian eats as they grow in the faith.
Baby Christians are told to long for spiritual milk. Peter tells us,
“As newborn babies, desire the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow, if it is true that you have experienced that the Lord is good.” (1post was originally published on this site
