If you have been walking with the LORD for any length of time, you will soon realize that He is a family man! It began in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. when in Genesis 1:27, 28 he exhorts us "to be fruitful and multiply."
God is a God of faithfulness. Even when we are not, He remains a faithful and loving Father. In order for our mustard seed of faith to grow, Romans 10:17 tells us, "Faith comes by hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ" To be faithful to God is to embrace his Word fully.
Spiritual growth is for our benefit! We shed the old man when we humbly receive Jesus as our Savior. But it doesn't stop there, or at least it shouldn't. To make Him LORD over all the affairs of your life, you must apply the word of God. James 1:22-25 instructs, "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." Spiritual nourishment is far more valuable than satisfying natural hunger.
