Once you are forgiven it is meant for you to move on and get into the meat of God's Word. Many choose to stay at the milk level [new Christian, easily deceived] and never become a mature Christian [getting into the meat of His word, becoming one who is not easily deceived]. Learn what He expects from you. If you choose not to study the entire Bible, how will you know what you believe in? How can you make sound decisions when you only allow a very small part of the truth into your mind? The answer is you can't; not without the whole truth. God's Word provides answers to the problems that we all face, [if] you seek the answers. It is very important to make yourself familiar with all of God's Word on your own. It is impossible to learn what is in God's Word a few
verses at a time. Ask yourself, why only a few verses once a week; who wants me uninformed and easily deceived? Once you start studying the entire Bible yourself, you can answer those questions.
Grow nearer to God by studying all of His Word, and through prayer. Open up that line of communication to Him. The power of prayer is truly awesome. Seek and you shall find [Jeremiah 29:13; Matthew 7:7; Luke 11:9]; don't be lazy, do you want wisdom and knowledge [Ephesians 1:17]? Try it, you'll like it. But, remember, you must obey Him. He tells you that in many places and in many ways. It might be time to be weaned off of milk [Isaiah 28:9-10, 13-14], and get into the meat of God's word. Hebrews 5:11-14; quit being just a babe in God's Word. Some will never
get beyond the milk stage of the word. 1 Corinthians 3:2.
Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
[You have been believers so long that you should be teaching others, but you need someone to take you back to the basic teachings of the Word. You are like babies needing milk and cannot digest solid food.] (I Corinthians 3:1-3)
Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
[If you still live on the milk of the Word, you are still an infant and don't know how to do what is right]. (I Corinthians 13:11, 14:20, Ephesians 4:14)
Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
[Solid food (in depth truth of the Word), is for those who are mature, those who don't want to be deceived, and through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong. "It's called discerning the truth." (I Timothy 4:6-7, (I Corinthians 2:14-15, Philippians 1:9-10, I Thessalonians 5:21). Test everything that is said to be sure it is true. Check it out with the Word and stay focused on what is good].
Crave the sincere, spiritual milk so you can grow into the meat of the Word and obtain a full experience of salvation. See 1 Peter 2:2.
