Thirsting for God

  This past week, in my sermon on Luke 2:22-40, we looked Simeon and Anna and talked about their spiritual thirst which found its fulfillment in embracing Jesus the King.  I mentioned an article by Donald Whitney that I think might be helpful reading, so I'm including the link--just click here.  
  In the article, Whitney identifies three types of thirst: the thirst of the empty soul, the thirst of the dry soul, and the thirst of the satisfied soul.  He goes on to give some practical suggestions about where to do with our thirsty souls.  I hope this article will be some help and the start of more serious and concerted reflection for all of us on the invitation that we have for intimacy and depth in our relationships with God.
