No, I do not mean for food and drink, but the spiritual food which only God can give.

There are many false gods in this world, and the worst of all is one which you have in your imagination, which suits you. That particular god is just useless and cannot save anyone, neither can any pagan gods, nor new age teaching.

The God I am speaking about is the one true and only God, found alone in the reading or preaching of the Word of God. The Bible (King James Version) tells you all you need to know about yourself, a sinner, and that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour.

If we are being drawn to Him, we start to want to find out the truth, and we develop a hunger and thirst for that truth, then God in His grace and mercy will find you. We hunger and thirst after Righteousness, and God then promises that we shall be filled. We are then brought into the light of His glorious gospel and are filled with love for Him. Our lives are then changed in a wonderful way, for we now only want the truth and the things of God, and the world becomes as nothing to us. Everything else becomes secondary.

Too many people do not want their lives changed, for they think they are happy as they are, but then they have no light or understanding of what it is to know the Lord. They are blinded by the god of this world, satan, who keeps them in darkness.

There are many who profess to be Christians but they have never had a true conversion which can only come from God alone, not by their self-will. They do not hunger and thirst to love and to know Him. There are many who are just Religious, who only follow a creed or a church teaching, and never come to a true knowledge of Christ.

The Word of God says in Matthew 5 verse 6 “Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” I can vouch that this is so. Please get a Bible (King James Version) and read it and may God, in His mercy, draw you to Himself. There is nothing like it, it is a miracle! Brought from darkness to light! Born again, from your carnality to a spiritual rebirth. Now you have eternal life and will spend it with Christ in Heaven.
