HUNGRY AND THIRSTY

MATTHEW 5:6

INTRO:

A) ARE YOU HUNGRY

B) ARE YOU THIRSTY

C) WHAT DO YOU HUNGER FOR

D) WHAT DO YOU THIRST FOR

1) DO YOU HUNGER TO BE NOTICED BY OTHERS

2) DO YOU THIRST FOR YOUR PAYCHECK

3) DO YOU HUNGER FOR PEOPLE’S ATTENTION

4) DO YOU THIRST FOR GOD’S AFFECTION

E) IS YOUR SPIRIT STARVING TO KNOW GOD

F) IS THERE ROOM IN YOUR LIFE FOR HIM

GOD SAYS THAT WHEN WE THIRST AND HUNGER WE SHALL BE FILLED

YET TODAY THERE ARE SO MANY WHO ARE NOT REALLY THIRSTY AND HUNGRY TODAY

OH YEAH WE SAY WE ARE BUT ARE WE REALLY HUNGRY

ARE WE REALLY THIRSTY

LISTEN TO JEREMIAH:

“For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” Jer. 2:13

HE SAYS THAT THE PEOPLE HAVE:

1) FORSAKEN GOD……THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS

2) TO HEW (CUT /CARVED) FOR THEMSELVES CISTERNS, THAT CAN HOLD NO WATER.

GOD IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF:

1) TRUE LOVE

2) JOY

3) HAPPINESS

4) SATISFACTION

5) CONTENTMENT

WE MUST RELY ON THE SUPPLY OF LIVING BREAD AND LIVING WATER

YET MANY HAVE REJECTED HIM AND ATTEMPTED TO CREATE THEIR OWN RESERVOIRS OF HAPPINESS

BUT ALL THE GET ARE CISTERNS THAT ARE BROKEN AND CAN HOLD NO WATER

WE SET BACK AND SAY

1) OH I NEED MORE

2) I’M NOT GETTING FED

YET THE REAL TRUTH IS WE’RE NOT REALLY THIRSTY OR HUNGRY

WE’RE REALLY NOT WANTED TO BE FED

OUR TEXT TELLS US THAT IF WE TRULY ARE THIRSTY AND HUNGRY THAT WE WILL BE FILLED!

I. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE THIRSTY AND HUNGRY:

A) TO BE TRULY THIRSTY AND TO BE TRULY HUNGRY MEANS THAT YOU WILL LET NOTHING GET IN YOUR WAY TO FILL THAT VOID

B) YET MOST PEOPLE REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND TRUE HUNGER OR TRUE THIRST

C) OUR LIVES OF COMFORT GET IN THE WAY OF UNDERSTANDING THESE WORDS

D) BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE TRULY HUNGERY AND THIRSTY YOU WILL DROP EVERY THING

E) ONLY ONE THING MATTERS

F) YOU KNOW YOU ARE EMPTY

G) YOU NEED TO BE FILLED

H) YOUR HIGHEST PRIORITY AND PURPOSE IN LIFE WILL BE TO SATISFY THAT CRAVING.

ARE YOU DOING THAT?

WE MUST PERSIST UNTIL WE ARE SATISFIED

YOU MUST CONTINUE UNTILL YOU ARE FILLED

WHEN YOU HAVE THIS KIND OF DESIRE, IT IS EVIDENCE THAT YOU ARE TRULY DISSATISFIED WITH YOUR PRESENT SITUATION.

MANY THINGS TRY TO RULE OUR LIVES:

1) LUST OF THE FLESH

2) LUST OF THE EYES

3) PRIDE OF LIFE

WE DON’T LIKE AUTHORITY

SO OFTEN WE ARE INFLUENCED BY THE ENEMY

YET WE MUST SUBMIT TO GOD

IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT WILL HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY

WE MUST SUBMIT IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCE GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS

AND IT IS AT THIS POINT THAT WE SHALL BE FILLED!

TO BE FILLED MEANS TO BE SATURATED

WE MUST:

1) HUNGER AND THIRST FOR GOD ALONE

2) SEEK AFTER HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

3) INTENTIONALLY SUBMIT TO HIS RULE OVER EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES

4) THEN AND ONLY THEN

5) WE CAN BE FILLED
