Are you hungry?
It’s a simple question, really. Do you have a nagging need within you to fill an empty place within you?
Hunger is often associated with food, but there is a duality to be discovered here. Quite often, Jesus fulfilled a real and tangible need within a person or persons during His ministry, but there was another side to this fulfillment.
Over and over again, Jesus fulfilled a need in order to illustrate the need we have for a Savior. Whether it was food, water, healing or driving out demons, He was more than capable...but Jesus would follow up His miracles with a lesson. A lesson in temporary versus eternal.
You see, we get hungry again. We get thirsty again. We get sick again. Most importantly, we sin again. Why keep turning to the quick and temporary fix when you can run to the one who will fill you up forever?
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes through the Father except through me.” - John 14:6
Once you experience this, once you know His Truth, in that we all have a void within us that can only be filled by God’s only Son, then we have no choice but to share it with others.
The 2 5 1 Ministry (2 Fish, 5 Loaves, 1 Love) is an opportunity to fulfill a need and share His love through a hot, home cooked meal to those in our immediate community. We prepare, package, and deliver said meal on the last Saturday of every month (our schedule may differ from time to time due to holidays and such).
There are many ways to get involved in this ministry. Whether you want to roll up your sleeves and help out in the kitchen, or if you wish to go out into our community and make genuine connections with those in need, there is a place for you in 2 | 5 | 1. Contact me, Todd D. Wilson, at 219.309.7333 to find out how.
So I ask again, are you hungry?
