Regenerated for Longing

1 Peter 1:22-2:3
Having discussed love, Peter now turns to longing, laying out instructions that may seem strange to us: Instead of the corrupt, sinful desires you used to have, long for the pure, spiritual sustenance that God provides. While it may seem odd to us to be told to desire, our text contains the key to this, as we are taught to yearn aright for the Lord whose kindness we have already experienced.
