He / She will need a spiritual food to sustain his life.
Hence, Jesus said “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of God”. Matt.4:4.
The Living Word of God is the only “food” that can sustain the spiritual life which God gives to those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Every living thing must grow. As it grows, its requirement of food also increases. The same is true of our spiritual life. The bible reveals three kinds of spiritual food for three different stages of the Christian life – Milk, Meat and Strong meat. 1 peter2:2,
• The Motive for studying the word of God

• Word Digestion
• Writing down what you have observed or discovered.
• Personal application of the Word of God.
