Excerpt from The Bible Vision, Vol. 4: A Bimonthly Journal Reflecting the Light of the Bible on Us and Our Times; June, 1940 To hunger after righteousness, then, is to feel the pain of great desire which He felt in the wil derness. Goodness is to know something of the consuming pain He knew on Calvary. In the light of this can we wonder that we know so little of true blessedness? The great trouble today is our lack of spiritual appetite. We have not because we ask not. We ask not because we feel no hunger nor thirst. Yet it is not our purpose to re proach those who feel no appetite after righteousness. It is our desire, rather, to stir up the men and women of our day to seek after and cultivate a longing aft er God. The early Methodists saw the need for this and made a great deal over it. The rugged old preachers of those times sought by their preaching to create in their hearers a hunger and thirst so acute and painful that they could not rest till they had found relief in God. And when a mourner confessed that he was losing his appetite he was exhorted to pray on, brother, till conviction falls on you again. We can easily under stand why conversions in Meth odist circles were often explo sive in their suddenness and revolutionary in their effects.
