Hunger

Is there more to Christianity than just getting into heaven?  Jesus said in Matthew 5:6 that we would be blessed and filled if we hungered for righteousness.  Being hungry isn’t a surface level experience.  It’s more than a quick prayer and filling out a card.  Being hungry means you can’t live without more.  That without being filled you will wither away and die.  And at some point you will be hungry again so you’ll need to be refilled on a regular basis.  That’s what God wants for us.  He wants us to be in a constant state of desire for more of Him.  That’s what gets us closer to the throne and there’s really no better place to be.  May we all have an insatiable hunger for more of God’s presence and an even greater desire to release that presence into the lives of everyone we meet!
