As a believer what does hunger and thirst after RIGHTEOUSNESS means to you?
MATTHEW 5:6……Says…Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Brethren, permit me to say that the desire for RIGHTEOUSNESS and RIGHT LIVING is food and drink to the Body, Spirit, Mind, and Soul.
What you thirst and hunger for is what you will be fed and the things you eat and drink has the ability to break or build your body, strengthen your spirit and influence your heart and mind.
To hunger and thirst after RIGHTEOUSNESS is to constantly desire and do the things that pleases God without compromising whatsoever. It is right living with God and man.
ISAIAH 55:1…..Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters. Specifically, God wants you to come and explore His possibilities for you.
A person who thirst and hunger after RIGHTEOUSNESS is always ready to sacrifice anything at anytime….eg the disciples of Jesus Christ.
MATTHEW 4:18-20……And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
Beloved, there are so many benefits if you hunger for righteousness and refuse to compromise.

3). Get in the Word and stay there….. Because, as a Believer, it is essential to keep putting the Word inside you to stay spiritually energized and hungry.
4). Be spiritually minded, and if you fail to find anything to do, that means there’s nothing that interests you. Always be watchful of boredom because
It reduces spiritual hunger which can result to loss of joy.
REMEMBER! ONLY GOD SATISFIES.
5). By all means, sidestep unhealthy cravings. Your body is the temple of the Lord and he doesn’t want you to download trash in it….so,when the Holy Spirit says avoid certain people, foods and drinks, or activities that eat away at holiness, do it quickly without hesitating.
