Got Real M.I.L.K.?
KING ? Jesus
1 Peter Ch2 Vv2-3
John Ch15 Vv1-8
I want to know this morning, how many of us Got Real M.I.L.K.? I know everyone of us have heard the saying “milk does your body good.” They have even went as far as saying that at least 3 cups of milk a day will help you keep off the unwanted pounds. The doctors have stressed how important it is to give our kids milk in hopes that they will grow up with strong bones because of the calcium milk has. I have even read because of the proper amount of milk in your daily diet, it will make you have stronger bones when you get over the age of fifty. So, as I began to think about what milk could do for my body and how important it was to my health, the Spirit of the Lord caused me to take a deeper look at the word “milk.” While taking a deeper look, I knew the Lord was about to give me a great word that I must share with whomever I can.
Before we look at what kind of milk we have in Jesus, I want you to see what you really have in the milk the world offers you. Because when we finish this message, we want you to really know if you Got Real M.I.L.K.!
The role of milk is to nourish, provide immune protection and for bone strengthening. Milk has been a food source for humans since prehistoric times. It comes from humans, goats, buffalos, sheep, yaks, domesticated cows. Milk and honey are the only articles of a diet whose sole function in nature is for food. It is not surprising, therefore, that the nutritional value of milk is high. Milk is made up of :
3.9 % milkfat
which in turn, is how we get milk. While all this is interesting to know, milk in which the world offers is only good for your physical body and that’s all. In all of my research on milk, I found nothing about milk being able to sustain our lives. As a matter of fact, if you don’t keep it at the right temperature, it will spoil. So when we really look at this earthly milk, it needs us to take care of it instead of it taking care of us. My question is does this milk really do our body good? This is why I want to make sure this morning that you have Got Real M.I.L.K. ?
This Real M.I.L.K. I am talking about is the best kind of milk you can ever have. Not only can this milk sustain us, but it can keep us both physically and spiritually. Now this milk really does the body good! I am talking about a Mighty, Incredible, Loving, King. It should be our desire to drink this milk all day long. If we drink this milk everyday, it will cause us to grow up and become mature in our faith in Him.
In our text, we see that 1 Peter Ch2Vv2-3 says: “(2)As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (3) If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. Peter is teaching us that we should yearn to grow in the Lord. Because we know that the Lord is good, I don’t know this morning about you, but my total desire is to serve the Mighty, Incredible, Loving, King (Jesus)! In order for you to want this milk, you must see your need for it. But it is really sad that many don’t ever see the need; and so, they never mature. We must grow in his word because it will cause our relationship with the Lord to be stronger.
Jesus is a Mighty, Incredible, Loving, King. Jesus is our everything!
Mighty: Ephesians Ch1Vv19 says: “ And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power” God’s incomparable power is available to help those who believe. Jesus’ power is so mighty that he changed situations throughout the Bible. We must learn how to allow the mighty power of Jesus to work in our lives.
Incredible: The things that Christ does for us, each and everyday in spite of how we did him in itself makes him Incredible. But Paul better tells us how incredible Christ is through his speech before King Agrippa in the 26th chapter of the book of Acts. For even Paul uses the word incredible in verse 8. He says, “Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?” Paul talked about Jesus being so incredible that later in verse 28, we find King Agrippa saying “Almost thou persuades me to be a Christian.” Jesus is so incredible that just the very mention of his name can change your heart, if you will accept who he really is.
