The Milk of the Word

06 Oct

Now the means whereby we receive all our growth and increase in God is the lively preaching of the Word of Truth… Therefore, thirst and long for the Word of God as little infants [which are new born] cry for their mother’s milk to nourish and sustain them…God is our Father to beget us; the Church, His spouse, our Mother to conceive us; the seed whereby we are bred and born again is the Word of God; the nurses to feed and wean and cherish us are the ministers of the gospel; and the food whereby we are nourished and held in life is the milk of the Word. —Henry Smith “Food for New Born Babes”
