3rd in a series on the Word of God.
1 Peter 2:2  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 
A newborn baby is totally dependent upon his mother and is instinctively drawn to her milk. Nutrients that are a part of the mother are transferred to the child and the child naturally grows and develops.  Likewise, when we partake of God's word which reveals His nature, His will, His heart and His emotions, these things are imparted to us and become a part of our spiritual being  (II Peter 1:4).
Job had this to say about the word of God.
 Job 23:12  Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary [food]. 
When Jesus was being tempted by Satan, He referred him  to Deuteronomy 8:3 and told him that the bread of the word of God is what is necessary for our existence.
Jesus also stated that His words were spirit and life . He is the living bread which came down from heaven (John 6:51). His words are alive and feed our spirit which will live forever. Our natural food is relatively unimportant as it only maintains our flesh which will pass away in a short time.
Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 
 John 6:63  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.

The man walked over to the perfume counter and told the clerk he'd like a bottle of Channel No. 5 for his wife's birthday.

"A little surprise, eh?" smiled the clerk.

"You bet," answered the customer.  "She's expecting a cruise."

Keep Looking Up!
