"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

July 02, 2011 (hunger and thirst)

hunger and thirst

“The key to Christian living is a thirst and hunger for God.
And one of the main reasons people do not understand
or experience the sovereignty of grace
and the way it works through the awakening of sovereign joy
is that their hunger and thirst for God is too small.”
- John Piper

“The greatest enemy of hunger for God
is not poison but apple pie.
It is not the banquet of the wicked
that dulls our appetite for heaven,
but endless nibbling at the table of the world.
It is not the X-rated video,
but the prime-time dribble of triviality
we drink in every night…
For when these replace an appetite for God Himself,
the idolatry is scarcely recognizable, and almost incurable.”
- John Piper
