Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"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 28, 2011 (thirst and hunger)

thirst and hunger

“Do you want to increase your hunger for the Lord?
Try weaning yourself from the world's diet -
be prepared for some withdrawal symptoms
when you turn off the radio and the TV
and eliminate unnecessary activities.
Then begin feeding on the Word of God.
At first, it may seem bland and boring;
but in time, you will discover
that it satisfies in a far deeper, richer way
than those things you once thought were so filling.”
- Nancy Leigh DeMoss

“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
