Satisfying our Hunger

Do you ever feel hungry?  What do we need to do to make that feeling go away?  Physically speaking, we feed our bodies from the food/drink/nutrients that we take in.    But what about spiritually?  How do we feed our souls?  There are days I am spiritually hungry and dry, needing to be fed.  What is the best way to do this?  To satisfy spiritual hunger, we do it in the same manner as we do the physical hunger, we need to feed the hunger.

John 6:35 says: “Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.’ ”  The NASB Life Application Study Bible explains it this way: “People eat bread to satisfy physical hunger and to sustain physical life.  We can satisfy spiritual hunger and sustain spiritual life only by a right relationship with Jesus Christ.  No wonder he called  himself the bread of life.  But bread must be eaten to sustain life, and Christ must be invited into our daily walk to sustain spiritual life.”

The way to feed ourselves spiritually, we need to spend time each day, ingesting the Word of God.  When we read, meditate, study, memorize and pray each day, we are being filled and nourished with the Bread of Life, Christ. When we do this, our lives are filled with all the good things the LORD has for us.

If you get that hungering feeling, kind of like something is missing in your life, go to the Word and feast on the Bread of Life and your soul will be filled and you will hunger no more.
