“Desiring The Pure Word Of God”

1 Peter 2:1-3

1 Therefore, laying aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,

2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,

3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.
