Get into God’s Word - Your Daily Forward Devotional


Get into God’s Word


October 2




Have you ever been stuck in accomplishing a goal? You want to read a book, but each time you go to read, you fall asleep? You want to lose weight, but when you open the fridge, you only see junk food? You want to grow spiritually, but you don’t know how?

Being spiritually stuck is one common struggle of Christians today. They want to grow up spiritually, but they feel stuck.

Here’s what Peter says about this: “Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.”

If you want to grow spiritually, it’s a two-step process: 1) Don’t settle for watered-down theology. 2) Seek and experience God.

If you want to become unstuck spiritually, you first need to get into God’s Word. Look for sound biblical teaching like what we offer at Back to the Bible. Don’t look for what fits you. Don’t look for what’s easy to digest. Get into all of God’s Word and learn from those who are committed to historic, evangelical theology.

Second, know God. Don’t know of God, but really know God. Experience God’s grace, loving-kindness, and mercy. When you do, you can’t resist it. It’s like taking the first bite of your favorite meal. You can’t stop after one bite. It’s so good you just keep going back again and again.

God loves you and wants you to grow up and love Him more. Taste and see, and you’ll never look back.


Text in Context: Read 1 Peter 2:1-3

Reflect: What’s the difference between something pure and something impure? How could you tell? How does a person taste and see God?

Respond: Where do you struggle more: knowing God intimately or consuming that pure, spiritual milk? What’s one thing you can do to know God better this week? If you want to consume more pure milk, try one of our daily reading plans at

Prayer: Father, I know you, and I want to know you more. Help me taste and see! Amen.

Yeah Lord, thank You for allowing me to taste of You and to experience for myself that You are good and that You are gracious.
