Sacred Thirst : Meeting God In The Desert Of Our Longings
Jesus once said, “Whoever drinks of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty.” So why are Christians still thirsty? We throw ourselves into church work, Bible studies, prayer, missions, fellowship. Yet still we search restlessly for something more. What are we missing?
Perhaps the answer is, more of Jesus. Church meetings and programs, ministry, Christian counseling, and home groups are all good, but they are not him. It doesn’t matter how devoted we are to these wonderful activities; they are not the same thing as communion with Jesus. Our souls crave him alone.
In Sacred Thirst, author and pastor Craig Barnes brings us face-to-face with our desperate longing for God. Like the woman at the well, we have tried to satisfy our parched souls with so many other things – even religious things. But when we get to the bottom of our desire, we find Jesus quietly waiting with his living water – intimate communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
This book is filled with unique insights into human experience and the character of God. With his keen understanding of the needs of contemporary Christians, Barnes points to the only way our thirst will ever be satisfied. Drawing from his rich background in the Bible and his tender insights as a pastor, he leads us into a new understanding of ourselves and the uncontrollable but gracious God we seek.
