Stay Thirsty

Who would have thought that a tagline from a beer commercial would describe so well the essence of the Christian life? It is sad that we can so easily lose our thirst for knowing God in all of His fullness and glory and majesty and holiness and splendor.  We get caught up in, as John writes "…everything that belongs to the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one's lifestyle…" (1 John 2:16, HCSV) and lose our desire to know God.  Oh, that our lives would reflect the heart of the Psalmist when He wrote "Whom do I have in heaven but you?  And I desire nothing on earth but you." (Ps. 73:25, HCSV).  God. help us to live in the promise "I am the bread of life.  He who come to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst (John 6:35, NKJV).  Lord, help us stay thirsty for you!!!
