A Burning desire


"Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness. You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple. He was rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor. And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. As the Scriptures say,
“I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem, chosen for great honor, and anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Yes, you who trust him recognize the honor God has given him. But for those who reject him, “The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.” And, “He is the stone that makes people stumble, the rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they do not obey God’s word, and so they meet the fate that was planned for them. But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” ’
1 Peter 2:2-10
Those who have the burning desire to know the Holy Spirit and spiritually sacrifice those will receive Him.

it's true you need to have the desire to receive the Holy Spirit, if you don't you are not going to receive.

I have been reading through some of your pats for a few months now Mrs Tania and I must say it as been a great help for my spiritual growth. The particular post reminds me that I have been chosen by God, even if I get rejected by anyone, what really counts is that I recognize that I am chosen and I have a personal relationship with God , which will lead me into His perfect will for my life and that all begins with my daily sacrifices to keep the firing of the Holy Spirit burning within me.

what draws my attention is the first part "Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness" There never is an end to God. Even when i fight, fight and overcome one more stepping stone, there are many more before me, and with each one, i experience even more of the fullness of salvation and i learn more and more about God. My marriage with Him gets better and better with each battle, each stepping stone, each outpour of pure spiritual milk He gives me. I am chosen, He chose me and as shanna said, i have each day, to increase the fire in me by offering fresh blood.

That part you write just speaks for itself, you wont receive because you deserve buy because you sacrificed.

Thank you, you can be rejected by many in life because many rejected him while he was on earth and are still rejecting him even today. but he Himself will never reject you if you have the desire to be one with him
