Our Hunger For Love
by Krystle Foster
2/06/2014 / Relationships
What the world needs now is love isn't just a popular song. But it is an actual true fact. Because God created in us an hunger or desire for love and to be loved. But the problem is that we look for love in all the wrong places. When we should instead seek God's glorious face. So we pursue all kinds of relationships and material things to fill an emptiness or void inside. But the problem with that is it only fills the void temporarily and always leaves us wanting more.
Just like in that AT&T cell phone commercial with the man and the cute kids. So the man asks the kids which is better more or less. And they all scream more! Then a cute little girl says we want more we want more because it's not nice to not have enough. So inside of all of us is a desire for love. And to try to fill it with anything other than an intimate relationship with God, thru His Son Jesus Christ will leave us filling empty. And wanting more like that cute little girl in the AT&T commercial. Because you can't make enough money, you can't buy enough stuff, and you can't have enough relationships, drugs and sex. These things leave u always wanting more.
So how do I fully satisfy my hunger or desire for love? Well remember in the Bible when the Samaritan woman meets her messiah please read (John 4:7-15) nkjv. So basically a thirsty Samaritan woman came to draw water. But she meets Jesus there and He asks her for a drink of water. And she replied I'm a Samaritan woman how can you ask me for a drink? ( for Jews don't associate with Samaritans). So Jesus said If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would've asked him and He would've given you living water. Sir the woman said you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Are you greater than our father Jacob. Jesus answered everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them thirst. Indeed the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up into eternal life. So she asks Jesus for this living water. So you can read the rest of the story on your own time.
But my point is that trying to satisfy our hunger for love without an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, is like a thirsty woman in a well. Sure a drink from the well will satisfy her thirst but for how long until she comes back for more? What we don't realize in our pursuit of money, things and relationships is that we truly hunger or thirst for God's wonderful Love. And like the thirsty woman in the well we too need to meet our Messiah. Don't worry you don't have to clean up your act first because God will meet you right where you are.
So come as you are and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior today.
Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth this Simple Prayer of Salvation :
"Dear God I know I'm a sinner, I know I am not where I want to be, and I want your forgiveness! I believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for my sins.
Please wash me clean from all sin, shame, and guilt, come into my life Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I ask this in your name Jesus.
If you prayed that simple prayer you just got born again. Congrats! Now it's time to take the next step and join an local Bible believing Bible teaching church and learn how to begin to have an intimate relationship with God thru His Son Jesus Christ. May God bless You.
