A Hunger For God

The more deeply you walk with Christ, the hungrier you get for Christ

. . . the more homesick you get for heaven the more you want “all the fullness of God”
. . . the more you want to be done with sin . . . the more

you want the Bridegroom to come again . . . the more you want the Church revived and purified with the beauty of Jesus
. . . the more you want a great awakening to God’s reality in the cities
. . . the more you want to see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ penetrate the darkness of

all the unreached peoples of the world
. . . the more you want to see false worldviews yield to the force of Truth
. . . the more you want to see pain relieved and tears wiped away and death destroyed
. . . the more you long for every wrong to be made right and the justice and grace of God to fill the earth like the waters cover the sea.

If you don’t feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory
of God, it is not because you have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because you have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Your soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great.”

John Piper
