“You must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment”-1 Peter 2:2
It is possible to maintain a spiritual hunger for God for the rest of your life. I’ve learned that there are ways to keep a spiritual appetite. Let me share with you:
Remind yourself how much God loves you. The more you understand how much God loves you, the more you’re going to love Him. The Bible says in Ephesians 3:18-19 , “May you have the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then, you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God”
Stop filling up on junk food. You are a spiritual being with a God-shaped hole in your heart that only God can fill. When you try to fill it with salary, status, success, passion, possessions, power, prestige, or anything other than God, it’s not going to be fulfilling. Proverbs 15:14 says, “A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash”.
Make knowing God your number ONE goal. Happiness is a byproduct of knowing God. Jesus says in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you“. When you see God, then everything else will fall in place. He already knows what we need.
Get into God’s Word every day. The Bible is food for your soul. Eating a meal once a week won’t keep you healthy. In the same way, you need to feed on God’s Word every day. “You must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment” (1 Peter 2:2).
Appetite is influenced by association. If you hang out with people who only care about politics, that’s all you’re going to care about. If you hang out with people who only care about sports; that’s what you are going to care about. BUT, if you hang out with people who cares and loves Jesus, then you are going to care and love Jesus! I love Jesus because He first loved me.
I want to encourage you to associate yourself with others who have hunger for God! You are able to talk about God in every way and share your faith with others and is not ashamed to spread the “GOOD NEWS” of Jesus Christ. We are here to serve others and show others the love of Christ! Proverbs 2:20 says; “Join the company of good men and women, and stay on the paths of righteous”.
