Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6Here are a couple of excerpts from their book, Page 27-28 Our teacher spoke this afternoon about hungering after righteousness, the Kingdom of God. She commented on how differently these Mozambican pastors look at the Scriptures, because the word hunger has a whole other meaning to them. They know that hunger unfulifilled leads to death. These pastors have experienced that hunger. They have a desperation for this righteousness with the same yearning that they have for food. These men and women view the whole Gospel in a different light than we do in the West-the words of Jesus take on a different meaning and depth in the eyes of the poor. Page 31 More than the food and drink we need to live, we need fresh bread from heaven. We need the bread of life that only Jesus can provide-His glorious presence. Those who are spiritually hungry will be satisfied as they eat and drink of Jesus. My prayer is constantly that God would give us such a hunger for Him, and that He would pour out the healing oil of His Holy Spirit on all who are desperate for Him. We need to welcome such hunger. We need to be like helpless little children before our Savior, giving HIm full and absolute control of every area of our lives. Then we will know that, truly, Jesus is more than enough.
