Cry Out For Jesus

When we were young, we cried out for nourishment when we were hungry, and our parents made sure they went out of their way to ensure we were fed. There were times when they went hungry in order to make sure we had full bellies. They laid the foundation for us as we grew older, had kids and, in some cases, took portions off our own plate to fill theirs.


Our Father in Heaven watched over each and every one of us as we took our first steps in faith and cried out for more. We demanded leadership to oversee us in times of turmoil and strife and He gave us judges to guide us with wisdom. The people demanded a king and Saul was chosen. This turned out to be a poor choice but out of the chaos of deceit and jealousy came a great leader in David. There were good leaders who gave it all for those around them in those days but there were also those who changed once they started to feel and crave more power and more wealth.


Consider this, at the time when the people of Israel bowed down to the rulers from Rome, the hierarchy of the Jewish ruling family, the courts of the Sanhedrin and the Priests plus the tax collectors of all the groups, the atmosphere was ripe with deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech. The nation, under the burden of such chaos cried out for relief and God sent forth His only Son to feed the masses a message of love and peace.


So, get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech. Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness. 1 Peter 2:1-3 NLT


He came to nourish the hearts and souls of all and once we began to feed on the Message, we craved more, and He provided for all. He provided an example of living a life filled with love, Jesus showed the way to forgiveness of others and compassion to those who cried out for healing. The more we sought out wisdom, the more He provided, and, in the end, He gave it all on the cross for our salvation. God has held nothing back and, in the future, He will be back to take us all into a place where glory reigns.
