You and I, we were born hungry. Hungry for hope.
And this gnawing ache of the soul cannot be denied.
We could spend our whole lives searching for substitutes, sampling every measly morsel that falls our way.
But why scrounge for crumbs when there’s bread at the table?
It’s like the question the angels asked the women at the tomb after the resurrection –
“Why do you look for the living among the dead?”
We can’t afford to waste time looking for hope where hope does not exist.
There is only One who can fill that hunger. Only One cure for what we crave.
Jesus, the Living Bread.
We will never be satisfied with anything less.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life;
he who comes to Me will not hunger,
and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
I’m sure you’ve heard about the movie Son of God opening this weekend. Below is a short video highlighting scenes from the movie with a song by the band For King & Country, appropriately entitled Crave. Enjoy!
