If Christians live like we’re starving, how can we feed the hungry? Will starving people be drawn to those who are starving so they may be fed? A Christian who is living off a steady diet of the world—is a starving person. She is like someone whose body is infested with worms—because what she eats is feeding the very creatures that are starving and destroying her. No one wants what she has—especially if they have the same problem!
But—we don’t have to live infested by the wormy world!!!
I was that starving Christian, and I write these devotionals to draw starving people to God’s bountiful table! I was so eaten up with the diet of the world—that is, seeking pleasure, satisfaction, money, relationships and success—WITHOUT GOD—that in the end, I didn’t even recognize my own wretched self. I’m so glad God didn’t give up on me! He showed me my heart’s state of starvation; He drew me to His table, fed me with His Word, satisfied me with His friendship, and made me healthy and vibrant in His Spirit! Now, sharing Him is as real as if I’m sharing the cure for a horrible disease! The most horrible disease is sin—and Jesus is the only cure! He is the greatest satisfaction for my soul—and I want EVERYONE to be drawn to Him!
When our Christian life reflects satisfaction, joy, peace, wisdom, love, strength, our life attracts those who are starving for all these marvelous experiences.
These wonderful qualities come from God—NOT the world! The Bible says: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.” (Galatians 5:22-25) Jesus was crucified for our sins, and when we love Him with all our heart, we crucify our sin—and we don’t embrace or chase it.
The Bible tells us that the God of hope fills us with all joy and peace in believing, and we abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. (Romans 15:13) When God fills us, we abound with HOPE for those who are hungry and seeking.
