Like Newborn Infants

Currently listening to: “The Invasion (Hero)” by Trip Lee featuring Jai
Trip Lee’s new record “Between Two Worlds” is out, and it’s exceedingly good. Make sure you give it a listen if you’re into Christ-exalting and Gospel-centric hip hop.

A lot has happened since I last posted anything, and that’s why I haven’t been posting. Makes sense, I trust!

Needless to say, Audrey Renata Bolton was born at 11:33pm on June 11th, 2010 – much to the delight of her auntie Eileen, and Great Uncle Lance who share her birthday. Audrey clocked in at 10lb, 4oz and 22 inches in length (in other words, almost TWO FEET). As you have likely surmised by now, she was two weeks overdue and has a rather tall father.

I’ve had a short post sitting as a draft that I wrote during Audrey’s second week of life. It says the following:

“Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation”
1 Peter 2:2 ESV

For those who don’t know, infants are all about REGULAR INTAKE with intervals measured in hours (not days!), they’re all about getting a FULL FEEDING whenever possible, and if it’s time to feed, soothers don’t soothe… infants are all about the REAL DEAL.

For those who are good at missing the point, let’s spell it out. Our longing for the Scriptures (aka the “pure spiritual milk”) should be, in a sense, infantile. We should seek regular intake, full feedings, and vitally – the real deal. May it be so.

Sorry for all the dead air. I think I’m back now. Oh, I also started my Master of Divinity at Southern Seminary while I was gone. Long story with a great ending.
