“Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking. As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” (1 Peter 2:1-3)
As I memorized these verses, the Lord showed me two key points for growth:
1) We must lay aside some things
(malice – depravity, trouble; guile – a trick, wile; hypocrisies – acting under a feigned part, deceit; envies – ill-will, jealousy; evil-speakings – defamations)
2) We must desire God’s Word
With these two points applied, we can fruitfully grow in God’s Word.
