A lot of people look forward to church on Sunday to worship the Lord and hear the Word of God. And some people just attend church on Sunday because that’s what you do on Sunday. Someone expects it of them.
But when people get involved in Bible study or prayer during the week, it tells me something about them. It tells me they’re hungry for God. They have jobs or are in school, yet they’ve carved out time to hear the Word of God and worship the Lord.
To me that says they are spiritually healthy people.
At the same time, we can do things that can spoil our spiritual appetites, like maybe sitting in front of the television for three hours. There are certain people who, when we hang around them, don’t build us up spiritually. Rather, they tear us down.
We need to recognize there is always more to learn as Christians. There is always a lot that needs to still change in our lives. No matter how much you pray, you can always pray more. No matter how much you love, you can always love more.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” God wants to fill you up to overflowing.
