Our purpose here is to do God’s will and master sin.
Righteousness is a Supreme Object of Desire
God wants us to learn to love and desire Him with an eternal hunger and thirst for righteousness so we can receive eternal life.
The Desire is the Measure of the Supply
Physical hunger compared to spiritual hunger.
If you eat a meal you get full.
With spiritual hunger it’s the opposite; the less you eat, the more your appetite declines. But the more we hunger and thirst after God’s Word, the more we want.
1 Peter 2:2
A Real Desire Culminates in Action: Hunger Drives to Work
We physically fast to spiritually feast.
1 Corinthians 14:1
Seek first the Kingdom of God.
Pursue love and earnestly seek after spiritual things.
Serve other to build a desire for action.
