“Afterwards He Was Famished”
It’s a vivid picture of the humanity of Jesus; he so badly needed and wanted communion with his Father that he was willing to pay any price for it and to go through any suffering to have it.
God, fill us with such a desire to know you and to commune with you that we will give up whatever we have to give up and that we will do whatever we have to do in order to focus all the energies of our spirit on you.
God, form in us a spirit that is willing to forego even what we need in order to gain what we really need.
“He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished” (Matthew 4:2).
