First Peter 2:1-25

I Peter 2:1-3:

2:1Therefore, having put-away all badness and all deceit and hypocrisies and envies and all slanders from-yourselves, .2as now-begotten babies you must earnestly-long-for the logical un-deceitful milk in order that in it you may be increased into salvation .3since you tasted that the Lord (is) benevolent,

Following-on logically (from chapter 1), having put (placed, set) away from yourselves…

…as now-begotten babies (born just now, very recently brought forth from the womb, newborn infants) you must earnestly long (have a real longing, desire on-top of what you already have) for the…

…for the purpose and result that within the sphere of action of this milk you may be increased (caused to augment, grow, expand) into salvation (with a view to, directed to, and resulting in safety, the standing and state of being saved, made-safe to God from sins and their consequences, from destruction – all holy-people are presently saved but at a future time we will all receive the fullness of our salvation – this is what we are to grow into; refer also to I Peter 1:5, 7, and 13)

Each second and minute and hour and day and month and year that goes-by brings all holy-people (every Christian) nearer in time to the event of Christ's coming to gather us all together with him. When we will be gathered together with Christ we will receive into full manifestation the salvation which God has promised us in Christ. Currently we only have a token/deposit of it, which is the gift of holy spirit, to assure us that we will definitely receive the fullness of our salvation at a future time.

[Reference: Romans 2:4, 12:1; II Thessalonians 2:13 and 14; II Timothy 3:15; Hebrews 6:4 and 5, 9:28.]
