Matthew 5:6

 

Blesses are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.

 

Pondering what to write while I was meditating on the Word of God as well as reflecting on the conditions of our churches where many have become nothing more than social clubs. I say this because many who call themselves Christians are clamoring for a position for self glorification while forsaking the question how can I lift up the name Jesus and glorify Him in my service. In this position, will God’s righteousness be seen through my service or will it be smothered by my desire for life’s worldly pleasures? His righteousness is what all men will be judged.

Let me remind my fellow believers that our hunger and thirst for God’s righteousness can and will be destroyed if we allow worldly deceitfulness, wealth and the quest for power cloud our focus. When this occurs, then the person becomes spiritually dead. It is for this reason that all believers are encouraged to remain focus on Christ and His righteousness while adhering to the convicting work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit dwells in every believer to guide his/her footsteps into righteousness and truth.

Let me encourage my fellow believers to remain connected to the true vine as He is our power source and without this power supply we can do nothing in and of ourselves. He is the essence of our being from the beginning to the end; therefore, hunger and thirst after God’s righteousness instead of man’s.

God’s righteousness is far superior to that of man’s
