Our friends who are disconnected from God, away from fellowship, are not without joy. The One who makes His sun to shine and his rain to fall loves all the world.
“He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need there is.” (Acts 17:25)
Many spiritually dead people have experienced God’s kindness because He has satisfied their every need.
They are rich in substance, and cannot think of what they lack.
But better are those whose searching has come to an end in Jesus Christ who have just begun to seek. They have found that “satisfied needs” left them short. What Jesus does for them is create more need.
Jesus says “God blesses those who are hungry and thirsty for justice, for they will receive it in full.” (Matthew 5:6)
True blessedness is not defined by being satisfied, but begins by being needy.
