MacArthur …there's a lot of people searching and there's a lot of people longing for something in their soul, but there's no searching of the human mind and there's no longing of the human heart that can know satisfaction apart from Jesus Christ. The hungry heart only needs one food, Jesus Christ. What a joy.
Simeon …if we have Christ, we have all things. We can want nothing which is good for the body; nor any thing that relates to the soul. He is food to the hungry, clothing to the naked, riches to the poor, health to the sick, life to the dead; He is all and in all.
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
