five minute Friday blog is Crave.
What do you crave? Most of us crave food items from time to time. Or we crave other things. But do we ever crave the Bible? Do we crave God? I have to admit that I don't crave God like I should. We talked about this in Sunday School recently and it has stuck with me. There are things we need in order to live. Air, food, water, and shelter. Without those things, we would eventually die. As a Christian, I also need God in my life. I need to crave God. In order to fulfill this craving, I need to be reading from the Bible and listening to God's Word. Here are a few passages about craving God.
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? Psalm 42:1-2 (KJV)
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
John 4:13-14 (KJV)
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
Psalm 63:1 (KJV)
I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
Psalm 143:6 (KJV)
