DON'T MISS YOUR MEALS

'...the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.' - 1 Timothy 3 vs 15

Hello dearly beloved, this is one article you will need to personally copy and send it out to your friends and relatives who you know are babes spiritually, so they can learn from it.

Don't miss your meals! There is a question I usually ask, and it is, 'How many of you knew how you grew so big like this?' and each time I ask this question, no one seems to have the answer, which means that we never took thoughts of our growth, but we know that we're big now. Why? Because, growth is a process, whether physically or spiritually. Growth takes a process of time to actualize. Same it is with our spiritual growth.

From our opening scripture, the house of God is called the 'ground and the pillar of truth', which means that truth is shared in the house of the Lord. Now, remember, the word of God is the food for our spirit. Never forget that! So he tells us that we get spiritual food in the house of God, and this is the exact reason why we go to the house of God in the new testament age, so we can be taught God's word, hence fed with the required nourishment to grow.

1 Peter 2 vs 2 says;

'As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby...' {KJV}

Did you see that? Please, I'll love you to see the underlined portion of that scripture, and it says 'that ye may grow thereby.' Meaning, the word of God can cause you to grow, the word of God is food for the child of God, and just as we have milk and strong physical food, so the word of God can be milk to the spiritual children, and meat (strong food ) also to the spiritual adults or matured. Here we saw God's word as milk for the spiritual new born babes, now, let us see God's word as meat (strong food) for the spiritual adults or matured.

'But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age...' - Hebrews 5 vs 14 {KJV}

You see that? So here, we see that there is the milk and the meat of God's word. In the physical realm, you give milk to children, and meat to adults, so it is in the kingdom of God.

Child of God, are you feeding? Or you are starving? In the church (House of God) where you worship, are you been fed with knowledge and understanding or you are talked into a mess? You need to take out time to rationally answer these questions. In case you are in an Assembly where the word of God is not taught in simplicity, then do something about it. Find yourself where the word (spiritual food) is been served.

So now that you have located yourself in an assembly where you are been taught the word and fed with all spiritual nourishment, don't miss your meals!

There's no one who hates to eat physical food. We all love it, first for the sweetness of it, secondly for the refreshment it brings, thirdly, for the nourishment of it, fourthly, for the satisfaction it brings to us. That is exactly what spiritual food will do in you, it will bring sweetness, it will bring refreshment, it will bring nourishment, it will bring satisfaction. Just as physical food causes you to grow physically in a period of time under a consistent feeding, so spiritual food will cause you to grow spiritually in a period of time under a consistent spiritual feeding, which is the in-take of God's word.

Now, where is this nourishment given to us as children of God? In the house of God, as we read in our opening scripture, it is the ground of truth, and truth is the word (spiritual food). Remember, God's word = Truth {John 17 vs 17}.

Remember, God promised to give you a Pastor who will feed you. {Jeremiah 3 vs 15}. So if your Pastor is not feeding you, please identify yourself under another Pastor; it is not a sin. That's a good step one can take to his own benefit. Hence, never miss your church meetings, as your spiritual feeding comes from the church through the Pastor ministering there.

God Bless You.
- Pastor Jenning Uweye
