Then Jesus declared, I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.

 

The state of my heart!

You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. – Acts 8:21

Many believers like Simon the Sorcerer would not hesitate to ask for the gift of God in addition to the blessings which those gifs bequeaths to those who walk in them. There is nothing wrong with this after all for every believer that God calls his child, these are heirs by inheritance. What many struggle to come to terms with is when it appears as if these are being denied them and they wonder aloud- why? Peter told Simon the reason why he was disqualified from what he sought after; that the state of his heart was not right before God. Many may still struggle to accept this position ..after all we have been made right with God in Christ they would say. True, but our hearts in this case is not right with God when the motives driving the desire is wrong and is driven purely by lust, selfishness and greed, just as Apostle James pointed out (James 4:1-4). What should I do, well let us begin by asking for forgiveness and for our heart to be made right with God.
