Longing for the Word (1 Peter 2:1-3)

3/10/2024
God's will for every believer is their sanctification. That is the purpose of this life, with all of its trials and temptations. God has given us His word as a means of sanctification, but to gain from it, we must first put away our sins. Putting away sin and desiring God's word is impossible apart from the regenerating, converting work of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the gospel, we are made new creatures, fully capable of warring against our sins, loving God's word, and moving upward to conform to the likeness of our Lord.
