Number two of None But the Hungry Heart is shared with the specific purpose of setting forth some of the scriptural principles of growth in the Christian life.

An over-all knowledge of the Word of God is very important, and can produce a certain amount of spiritual development. However, careful study and experiential heart knowledge of the explicit truths for growth in the Lord Jesus Christ are required to bring us to spiritual maturity. The contents of this booklet are prayerfully designed to guide the believer to his satisfying source—Christ Jesus, our life.

It must be remembered that for the most part the results of such study do not immediately appear. The expectations of the hungry heart are often far in advance of the growth time involved. But the faithful Holy Spirit can be fully trusted to bring us along step by step on the path of life. “The Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things” (John 14:26).

“Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work” (2 Thess. 2:16, 17).
