Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:6, ESV)
Join us in our Bible memorization challenge. Memorize one verse a week one year. If you take the challenge you will commit 52 verses to memory by the end of the year.
This week we look at the fourth verse from the Beatitudes, the introduction to the Sermon on the Mount. Hunger and thirst are powerful forces. They are all consuming. When you are truly hungry and thirsty, there is not much else you can think about. Everything you do is about satisfying those powerful desires.
As believers, we recognize our righteousness is found in Christ. We are not going to achieve righteousness on our own through our effort. Ultimately, the desire for righteousness will lead us to Christ where we find our true satisfaction. There is nothing we will find in this world that will bring us greater satisfaction.
