In the first three verses of this second chapter Peter offers encouragement to grow or mature in the God-Life:
WHAT DO WE DO WITH WHAT WE HAVE THROUGH JESUS?
- Get rid of things that are distractions to your growth.
- Consume the things that will contribute to your growth.
- How does a child grow? By consistently consuming that which builds up the body. We (Christians) are to consume that which builds our faith.
- After tasting how good it is to know God and to walk with God and experiencing the tremendous satisfaction that a God-life gives, you can't go back to the bad stuff that you consumed in the past.
= The superior taste that comes with consuming the things of God changes what we desire to consume in life.
