Blessed Are the Hungry

This morning we see Jesus’ promise, “blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” Scripture says that the greatest battle we face is an internal battle of appetites or desires. Jesus helps us train our hunger on him, his kingdom and his righteousness. By faith we can be right with him, walk righteously, and extend righteousness to the poor and oppressed. We we receive righteousness we have it to give. He will fill us now and he will fill us for eternity.
