Like newborn babes, crave pure spiritual milk,
so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.
(1 Peter 2:2)
No one truly born of God would question that it is a commendable practice to have a daily quiet time with the Lord; in fact, it is absolutely vital to Christian growth. God built into every child at birth that insatiable desire for the very thing by which he or she lives. In the same way, if there’s not a desire for the Word, then there isn’t a new birth. It is impossible for us to subsist as Christians without our daily quiet time because God has placed into our spiritual nature a hunger for the Word of God.
