Hunger and Thirst For More

2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. 4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. 5 Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. ~ Revelation 2:2-5

They were doing all the right things, but it was more out of routine, a ritual even, not out of love. From the outside, they looked like the model church, but from the inside, they had lost the hunger for more. We have to hunger for more; we can’t become satisfied with where we are at and what we are doing. We must keep on expanding our borders, stretching our limits, and come out of our comfort zones. It is those who hunger and thirst for righteousness that will be filled. If you don’t hunger…you won’t be filled, simple.

Jesus loves those who hunger and thirst for more. When we get to the place where we say, “The same old is not good enough any longer; I want more.” That is when we begin to get Jesus’ attention. He looks at us with love, and His heart swells with pride, and He says, “Yes, that’s my boy, that’s my girl, and I am proud of you.” So, why do we need a continual hunger for more? Because Jesus wants and even expects us to always be panting for more. As we said earlier, it is those who hunger and thirst that are filled.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Hunger and Thirst For More.
