1 Peter 2:2-3 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 Peter 2:2-3

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. 


Last night, I was lying in bed and God was showing me how my walk with Him is like a swimming pool. When I was first starting out, I was a baby and wouldn’t leave the shallow end of the pool! I always needed someone to hold my hand and make sure I stayed afloat (LOL!). 


As I am growing up in Him, I have to start going toward the deeper end of the pool. But how do I learn to swim? By spending more time in His Word, in prayer, and with His people! I can’t be 5ft tall standing in the shallow end with water wings on. That would be silly! And it would have been absurd when I was first starting out to throw me in the deep end of the faith pool and see if I could swim in it!! Cause I would have sunk, quickly!


My point is that we are all in different parts of the pool but all on the same journey. So, no matter where you are, you are part of the team and are valuable! If you are still down in the shallows, then find someone jumping off the high dive and ask them to show you how. If you’re playing in the deep end, show someone how to swim!! It’s not a competition but more like a relay race, and we all have a part to play! I know that my personal growth in Christ has come not only from my time with Him but the people He has put in my path to show me how!!


2 Peter 3:18 - But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.


I love you all. Come on in’ the water is fine!! God bless, and Glory to God first, always, and only!!!!
