Spiritual hunger — it cries out for more of God

You can’t satisfy spiritual hunger with physical stuff, constant activity, meaningless distractions, or mind altering substances.

If you aren’t spiritually hungry, you may be full of worldly distractions. Spiritual hunger isn’t satisfied to hear a talk on the gifts or the fruit of the Spirit. It yearns to daily experience them.

Spiritual hunger longs for much more than mere information about God. It yearns for an intimate relationship with God, Himself. Spiritual hunger keeps me pursuing a closer relationship with Christ. I’m always yearning for more of His presence in my life.

Jesus said we should “hunger and thirst for righteousness,” but modern Christianity offers us religious talks instead. Spiritual hunger is an inner longing that can only be satisfied by the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, Himself. Seek Him.

If you’re hungry for more of God, begin to read the New Testament with an open heart and the living Jesus will meet you there. If you want to be hungry for more of God, try this fire starter. Read the New Testament 5 minutes (or more) everyday for 21 days.

If you’re hungry for ways to daily experience the gifts and the fruit of the Spirit, search: The Joy Of Early Christianity.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
