Hunger for Righteousness

By   •   August 16   •   Topics:

God says that only those who hunger after righteousness will receive it. God thrusts this heavenly manna on no one. You must desire it, above everything else. Your yearning for God must supersede all other desires. It must be like a gnawing hunger and a burning thirst.

Read this classic Billy Graham message on being in the world but not of it.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, my soul is parched and I'm so hungry without the spiritual food You so desire to give me. Take away anything in my life that would cause me not to give You pre-eminence.

  4. Gerry says:

    There are always many daily distractions in everyone’s life. However it is essential that our relationship with Jesus Christ stay preeminent above all other things. Forgive me Lord when I fail to maintain my focus on the most important relationship there is, that is my relationship with You.
