Preaching to the crowds on the mount, Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hunger & thirst for righteousness for they will be filled (Mt 5:6). Is righteousness something that you hunger for? As athletes, justice on the court or in the eld is important to us. Every league is filled with player’s pleas for the calls to be right in their eyes. When it comes to our world, do you hunger for things to be set straight and made right? Do you thirst and yearn for righteousness in your own life? The scriptures paint a clear picture; the desire for righteousness indicates that the righteous one, Jesus Christ has made your heart alive. Because of his mercy, He will trade your compromised moral performance for His perfect righteousness. You’ll receive what you do not deserve.
“For our sake God made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Cor 5:21
How is a righteous hunger expressed?
