THEY WILL HUNGER
Luke 6:21 ” ‘Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.’ ”
The Scene: The swarming fish came to the surface of the pond looking for food, symbolic of Christians who are born again and have a hunger for God’s Word.
Jesus said to the fishermen, Peter and Andrew, who later became apostles of Jesus, “I will make you fishers of men.” See Mark 1:17. Jesus knew the people had a hunger for the Word of God and that He needed men who would feed the people His Word, after He had gone back to heaven, after His resurrection.
When people become believers in Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, they are given a hunger for God’s Word, by the Holy Spirit. With that desire for the Word comes a hunger for righteousness.
Hosea 10:12 “Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers righteousness on you.”
Seek Him through His Holy Word, the Bible, which is food for the soul.
