Word for Today: Get hungry & thirsty for righteousness.
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6).
Jesus was/is a great teacher indeed. He is the final authority. Where do you get your instructions from?
One way of getting blessed, is to develop ‘thirst’ and ‘hunger’ for righteousness, and we know that Jesus Christ, the Word of God, is the righteousness of God for a fallen humanity. St James revealed that anyone who knows what is good and refuses to do it (when it’s within his/her reach), has sinned ( James 4:17).
There are many Christians who believe that because we are in the dispensation of grace, we don’t need to do anything as Jesus, the grace of God has done it all for us. This is a faulty belief. Yes, by grace we are saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8). By grace, we are who we are. But do we continue in sin so that grace may abound?
Developing thirst and hunger for the righteousness of God to be manifested in your life is a huge responsibility. You can only be filled to the extent that you are thirsty and hungry. You can choose to be blessed. How much hunger and thirst do you have for the righteousness in the word of God? You have a responsibility to love righteousness and hate iniquities. You will be filled to the extent of your hunger and thirst!
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant” ( Psalm 35:27).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word. Be knowledgeable and wise. Be enlightened.
Become a DISCIPLE, AMBASSADOR and a MISSIONARY for Jesus Christ henceforth.
Have a blessed new day.
Ensure you think no evil against anyone.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Our Father and our God, please give us the grace to have thirst and hunger for your righteousness in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Blood of Jesus. Blood of Jesus.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
