A Hunger for God!!!

Hey, Sweet Readers!!!

Just wanted to pop on here and share this quote out of a book I've been reading by Mr. John Piper,  A Hunger for God.  
It kinda gives a body those Holy Spirit chills....or  God bumps, as my friend, Ms. Kathy calls 'em!!!

"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 voice 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!!!"

I read this....and then re-read it....and have gone back and read it several times over.  
If I get nothing else out of this book, it was meant for me to read that one paragraph!!!

Hope all is well with y'all!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes HE most certainly is!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

Blessings,
Deb

  4. Thanks for posting this paragraph. Sometimes I ache to share the knowledge I have of Christ, especially to share it with those I love who might not know about HIM. Hope all is going well with the adoption. HUGS my dear sweet friend.
