Where to go from here?

1Peter 2:1-3 Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

Have you gotten a taste of grace? If you have come to know Christ you've gotten more than a taste. For "Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord." 2Peter 1:2 And how much more grace is available if we grow to maturity in our relationship with the Lord, even in the midst of difficulties, "the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast." 1Peter 5:10

This is the purpose of the Christian life - to glorify God by experiencing his grace. For "God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus." Eph 2:6,7

2Thess 2:16,17
"May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word."
