- JESUS: The Series (Season 5)
- No comments
John 6:33-35 says, For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
“Do you want to increase your hunger for the Lord? Try weaning yourself from the world’s diet- be prepared for some withdrawal symptoms when you turn off the radio and the TV and eliminate unnecessary activities. Then begin feeding on the Word of God. At first, it may seem bland and boring; but in time, you will discover that it satisfies in a far deeper, richer way than those things you once thought were so filling.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
We saw this week that when we follow Jesus, we hunger and thirst after righteousness(to do what’s right). I know in my personal life, much of my problem is I’m constantly full of other things: comfort, worry, or pleasure. God’s word tells us to be filled with the Spirit. Are there things I need to let go of in order to pursue righteousness? When Jesus calls us to follow Him, many times that means leaving other things behind. Is there anything that I am filling myself with that is keeping me from hungering and thirsting for God to make right things in my life and the life of those around me? Think on these things.
