Awakening a Hunger for God

No Comments

Studying and preaching on the spiritual discipline of fasting. I found this quote by Piper provoking:

"If you don't feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because you have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because you have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Your soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great. God did not create you for this. There is an appetite for God. And it can be awakened. I invite you to turn from the dulling effects of food and the dangers of idolatry, and to say with some simple fast: 'This much, O God, I want you.'" - John Piper, A Hunger for God, page 23
