1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
I left off yesterday asking you to think about what entering into the Kingdom of God would look like. As newborns you need to be fed and this brings up one of the more important aspects of living in the world and the Kingdom at the same time. In both the world and the Kingdom, you have appetites. Appetites do not dissolve just because you are born again.
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.
God provides the sustenance for Kingdom living and makes provisions to be our satisfaction.
Ecclesiastes 3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
Yet your body still has an appetite for worldly things.
Romans 13:13-14 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Galatians 5:16-17 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
You must receive spiritual sustenance in order to be able to walk in the spirit. If your diet is the things of the world, you have neglected the feeding of your soul.
