1 Peter 2:1‭-‬3 ESV – Have You Tasted?

So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 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.

~ 1 Peter 2:1‭-‬3 ESV

Here, the apostle Peter tells us to put away ALL malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander. What an awesome reminder of what it looks like to be light in this dark world that we live in today. If we’re to be light in the darkness, we will push away the darkness. Not only this, but people will be drawn to the light that is in us.

He also reminds us to never stop yearning for the pure spiritual milk so that we can continue to grow in our salvation! How I long for this spiritual milk! I get it in my time with the Lord through prayer, reading his Word, and doing my best to live a life worthy of my calling.

Let this scripture be a reminder to those of you who have tasted that the Lord is good!
