The Beatitudes (Matthew: 5:6) #BEDA 2018




This post is a continuation from this post . In the post referenced it was outlined to hunger after righteousness is to crave to do that which is right. Today we are looking at what it is to thirst after righteousness.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 
Righteousness is to do right, to live a life of purity or as the prophet of the Lord suggests “Righteousness is holiness, likeness to God” A life of virtue most reflect Christ. Does my life reflect Christ?
But what is it to thirst after this type of life?
To thirst after righteousness is to “eagerly long for, those things by which the soul is refreshed or strengthened”
This reference makes me think of the fact that we all are searching for inner peace we are looking for the things that will allow us to be refreshed.

Our search for holiness needs to be the same as we would do for food or drink.  
 “As we need food to sustain our physical strength, so do we need Christ, the Bread from heaven, to sustain spiritual life and impart strength to work the works of God. As the body is continually receiving the nourishment that sustains life and vigor, so the soul must be constantly communing with Christ, submitting to Him and depending wholly upon Him.”- Ellen White
What would your spiritual life be like if you searched after righteousness as you did food?
For those who thirst after righteousness God will pour out blessings. The more we seek after such the greater the blessing will be.
"When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water." Isaiah 45:8; 41:17, 18.” 

Challenge: Ask yourself do I thirst after righteousness?
