BLESSED ARE THE HUNGRY AND THIRSTY
MATTHEW 5:6 “BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR THEY SHALL BE FILLED”
Some of the religious leaders were called Pharisees. They were the opposite of those who are hungry for righteousness. They were self-righteous. They thought they were better than other people. I believe I have known some “so-called” Christians like that, and I bet you have too. They would get overbalanced and fall if that chip got knocked off their shoulder. And they would drown if a heavy rain caught them outside, because their nose is pointing so high in the air. These who hunger, and thirst of righteousness speaks of those who seek God’s righteousness rather than attempting to establish a righteousness of their own making. What they seek will fill them, it will satisfy their hunger and thirst for a right relationship with God.
Do you hunger for a right relationship with God? Do you feel like something is missing in your life? That something is that right relationship. You see, believing in and worshipping Jesus Christ is not religion, it is a relationship. The only way to get it is to desire it more than anything else in your life. Put God first in your heart and he will fill you with His spirit. And ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let him fill you with his spirit!!
