Are you hungry & thirsty?

Are you hungry & thirsty?

John 4:1-15 (KJV)
When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4And he must needs go through Samaria.
5Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

Are you hungry and thirsty?Do you feel that you want to know more and more about God?
When you become born again the Holy Spririt comes to live inside you.He gives you the desire to do the things of God.
Like 1 Peter 2:1-3 (NAS) says:
1Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,2like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,3if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.
Once you are now a Christian you have to feed yourself with the word of God in order to grow!If you don't feed yourself with the word of God you'll eventually get malnourished and die.The more you eat the word of God the more you grow.Think of it like this.There must by a balance between your physical and spiritual life.If you don't eat physical food you die.The same goes with your spiritual life.Though you never get fat Laughingwith the word of God because you never get full of it!If you want to grow spiritually from a new born baby (born again) you must:

1.Develope your relationship with the Holy spirit (this is very important)
2.Read the word of God a get someone like your Pastor explain whatever you don't understand.By reading the word of God ,God speaks to you.
John 1:1
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
3.Pray and always ask for forgivness.By praying you communicate with God.The highest form of prayer is worship.
4.Allow him to speak to you by having a quiet time with him.
5.Be active at the things of God.By replacing your worldly activities with Godly activities.
6.Fast whenever the Holy spirit convicts you.
7.Bear good fruit.
Matthew 7:15-20 says:
15“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
8.Share the good news with others and be a helping hand in bringing people into God's kindom.
