“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”
I currently play piano in a nice UMC. I Know that the people, know and love the Lord. (Why else attend for 60 years?)
What I do not, and will not ever understand, is how they can just accept where they are and not hunger and thirst for more.
How can you accept that God has saved you, and not believe the rest of His Word.
To my natural mind, there is nothing more outrageous or unbelievable then, a man has to die, to save me from my sins.
A man, sacrificed, to replace the blood of bulls and goats. How gullible, do we have to be, to believe this?
Yet, I do. Why?
Because, I sensed, a knocking on the door of my heart. I opened the door. Jesus came in.
The weight of the world, lifted off my shoulders. I experienced forgiveness and freedom from the bondage of sin and shame.
I am blameless in the beloved.
Should I stop here, continue no further? Is that all I need or want? No, no a thousand times, NO.
That place, is the beginning of a never ending quest, a journey of discovery. It gave me a hunger and thirst for righteousness.
The first taste, gave me, a longing for more. I search the Word, to know Him more.
You saved me Lord, You set me free, You let me recognize true love, for the first time ever.
I desire more. I realize, I do not deserve anything, that I am not worthy of Your notice.
Yet, I am loved, accepted and promised so much more.
IF I ONLY BELIEVE. IF I, HAVE FAITH IN GOD.
Saints, the Bible is full of promises, they are available for whosoever will.
We have too many who won’t.
I beg you, Seek first the kingdom of God, everything else you need will follow.
