Feast on the Lord

Matthew 5:6 - Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. 

There's more to feeding bread and water to the poor and starving in this world or here at home. While we are to do this in the natural, it is best to first have and do it through Christ who is the living water and bread of life.

Out of His own mouth, Jesus tells us:

"...whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life." On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink." (‭John‬ ‭6‬:‭35,4:14)
"Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him." And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirstI am the bread of life. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world." (‭John‬ ‭6‬:‭27,7:37,6:48‬,51)

It's  a simple message. Jesus Christ saves. He quenches our thirst and satisfies a spiritual hunger. Yes, we are commanded to feed the poor and take care of those in need...but it should not just be with the water and bread that never satisfies. It should include a large portion of Jesus Christ, the living water and bread of life. The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek Him will praise the LORD. Let your heart live forever! (Psalm 22:26)

Psalm 107:9 - For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
