You are not done as a Christian.
No matter how much you love, you ought to love more.
No matter how much you pray, you ought to pray more.
No matter how much you obey God, you ought to obey more.
Jesus said "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled" (Matthew 5:6 NKJV
We will not be completely satisfied until we see His face. Psalm 17:15 says, "I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness" (NKJV
). Until that day comes, there will be a "divine discontent."
Let me ask you this question: Are you satisfied with your present spiritual state right now?
Let me personally answer that: I am not. I need more—much, much more. I have far to go.
Therefore, we want to spend our time in pursuing God.
We all know that snacking between meals can spoil our appetites. In the same way, there are certain relationships, pursuits, and things that take the edge off of the godly spiritual appetite we should have. These things may be quite harmless in and of themselves.
The questions to ask yourself of relationships, pursuits, and such is: Does it make me more or less hungry for spiritual things? Does it draw me closer, or does it in some way keep me away from Jesus? Is it a "wing" or a "weight" in the race of life?
If you really hunger and thirst for righteousness, you will find it. Why? Because "where there's a will there's a way."
Are you pursuing righteousness?
