A Moment of Reflection

Satisfying the Hungry Soul

By Ernest S. Underwood

    “For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness” (Psalm 107:9). Do you ever do any daydreaming, wishing for something that you don’t have and may never get? I think all of us could agree that we have. Lots of times we wish for things that we really don’t need, or would not bring us the happiness we so earnestly desire.

   In the Beatitudes Jesus said, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled” (Matthew 6:6). This is that satisfying the longing of the soul of which David spoke. The beauty of this area of longing is that even today it can be fulfilled. Peter said, “As new born babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.” The knowledge of this Word will produce faith, and Peter also stated, “Receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls”

    Friends, develop a longing for God’s Word. Study it, obey it, and be saved by it.

Things Unthinkable

By Ernest S. Underwood

    You are standing at the foot of the cross watching Jesus of Nazareth as He hangs there. As you stand there, you know within yourself that there are some things that would be absolutely unthinkable.

    It would be unthinkable to argue that religious division is desirable. Yet, two thousand years after the cross, we hear religious spokesmen talk about “joining the church of your choice,” or thanking God for the many religious divisions that exist in the world today. Jesus, you remember Him, He’s the one hanging on the cross, said, “That they all may be one.” What is your attitude toward that prayer?
