Once born again, the believer is to desire the sincere milk of the Word. Continually nourished by it, he may grow spiritually in grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is God’s desire that first every man be saved, and secondly that every believer in Christ come to intimately know Him through the inculcation of the Word of God (1TI 2:4). The effectual work of God’s Word brings the believer into adjustment with God’s purpose, plan, and will. The internal execution of God’s Word brings glory to the Lord (ROM 12:1-2, 2CO 13:9, 1TI 4:6, 1PE 2:2, 2PE 3:18).
