Spiritual food

We believers have a spiritual food that is the Word of God, which is written in 66 books and we must eat of that food to be able to know God, since it is the written Word of God, for which it must be important for each person that belongs to the body of Christ. There is no food that can replace the Word of God, there is no other better method.

The author of the Hebrews dedicates a few verses to his readers to talk about apostasy, since in those times there were evil and dishonest men who twisted the gospel at their own convenience, thus deceiving many. But we must understand that those who were easily deceived, is because they were vulnerable because they did not eat the corresponding spiritual food.

The Bible says:

13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

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.

Hebrews 5:13-14

These verses are a rebuke to the church to who this writer wrote this letter, since having some time following the Christian truths, they still needed to be told about basic things, when they were supposed to be masters of theological truths.

Beloved brethren, we must not allow for any reason that being people with long time under the grace of Christ, we are still people who do not fully know the Christian truths, we should strive, study, spend time alone with God studying His Word.

Studying the Word of God assures us a solid food and not letting ourselves be deceived by the tricks of the enemy and by vain men who want to teach us something that is not the gospel.

    Spiritual food
    ==========
    As bread, milk, meat, fish,fruit and water are necessary for kids to develop their bodies, and as all of us need to maintain our bodies by eating and drinking every day, so is spiritual food quite important for our souls.

    “For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
    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.”
    Hebrews 5:13-14

    Spiritual milk was given to us, who are adults, to start to live and walk in the way of faith.
    We were told about the “a b c” of faith: the Lord God, Creator of everything, The Father, Jesus Christ, the Savior sent, and the Holy Spirit of God. We learnt about recognizing and feeling our sins, about going to Jesus Christ and confessing our sins to Him, and receiving Jesus as our saviour. We found out we needed to repent of our evil actions and walk in newness of life.

    Then when we learned about the gospel of Jesus, we were baptized in the name of Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

    Basically, we all got off to the same start in our Christian Life. As we have a body, we also have a soul or spirit, and both need to be nourished.
    We must eat every day a portion of God’s Word, which keeps us alive; and we must not forget to pray to the Father through Jesus, who is the Way to get fellowship with Him, with the leading of the Holy Spirit.

    It is an essential thing to read in order to learn everything I mentioned above, and more of the Bible; yes, it’s essential to become people of God, and to know how God is and his commandments. Similarly, we need to be taught by the ministers of the Word, in ours doubts or difficulties, so that we understand any portion of God’s Word.

    It is advisable to take a humble attitude, seeking to be near Jesus, so that our soul is blessed. God the Father hears our petitions if we give ourselves up to him, begging Him to forgive our sins by the name of Jesus Christ.

    May the Lord God help us in all our troubles and needs by the reading of his Word, the Bible, every day
