Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6
For those of my audience over the age of 50 you can probably recall full service gas stations. Actually the state of Oregon still has them by law. At a full service station an attendant would come to your car while you sat comfortably inside and ask you the question "Fill er up?" Next he would ask if you wanted your oil checked and would also wash your windows. Times were great for we baby boomers.
The 'fill er up' concept would be great when talking to people who don't know Jesus or maybe who do but don't do much beyond Sunday to grow in Christ. Fill yourself up on God's promises and truths found in only one place. The Holy Bible. Don't wait for church for a pastor or priest to spoon feed you but jump right in yourself and fill yourself to the brim.
Do you want to receive a 'fill up' today? Start by reading the Proverb corresponding to today's date and soon this habit will have you going to the 'pump' daily.
PRAYER: I am grateful to live in a nation where currently I am able to sit in public with my Bible and read. Many countries make it illegal. Help me to never take studying your word for granted. In Jesus' name. Amen.
