Are You Hungry? Let’s Go to 5Guys

Posted: November 2, 2012 in Lifestyle, Purpose, Questions

We all experience it, maybe infrequently, maybe too often and for too many all of the time. I am of referring of course to physical food that provides nourishment to sustain life. So much focus today is on food-cooking shows are some of the most watched on TV today. A better question than “are you hungry” might be “what are you hungry for?”

But how willing am I to experience loneliness and emptiness to learn to hunger after God as I hunger for no one or nothing else? While there is some joy and pleasure enjoying some things, our purpose on the planet is not to focus on consuming more. God uses the emptiness and loneliness we experience as we chase this stuff to draw us to a hunger for only him.

David experienced this-check out Psalm 63:1 and 73:25. Jesus was willing to confuse the disciples to get across a major point as he told them he had a completely different restaurant in mind. Take a look at John 4:27-34. I woke up the other day with a lot of things on my mind but the only thing I wanted to do was to spend time with Jesus. I knew it was the only thing that would satisfy my longing.

Would you be willing to come to a place where there is nothing in life that you want more than an intimate relationship with Jesus? It will cost, you will be tested but you will experience freedom unlike anything you have ever known.
