I’m Hungry

“Why are you discussing that you do not have any bread? Do you not yet understand or comprehend?” Jesus sensed the great struggle for power at work all around him. The Pharisees wanted it through religious compulsion. The Herodians wanted it through political action. Both groups were chasing popular opinion through compromised integrity. Where did Jesus’ followers side in this epic struggle for power?! They were just worried about who was going to have to skip the next meal! If only we were gripped with the cosmic struggle for power all around us! If only we were engaged in confronting and redeeming the culture all around us. If only we would get hungry for “your kingdom come!” But sadly, I think we are much too like the disciples…hungry for immediate comfort instead of hungry for lifelong transformation.
