TEAM HUNGRY: THE TRUTH BEHIND OUR NAME
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matt. 5:6
Hunger is a concept for something that can never be completely satisfied while here on earth. Hunger and thirst, as used in Matthew 5:6, describe an all-consuming craving, a desire, and a burning passion to satisfy a particular need. That hunger is a driving force in life that motivates, directs, and when not properly satisfied, brings about pain. In this context, Jesus uses the concept of hunger to bring about a greater meaning. If we crave, yearn, desire, and hunger for righteousness, we shall be filled. Team Hungry ultimately desires that people will hunger for a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We hope that when young people discover what they are hungry for that it will become a lifestyle of giving back. We desire for all to realize that only Jesus Christ can satisfy a person’s hunger.
