Do You Have an Appetite for the Things of God?

Would you know the reason why such multitudes around you take no interest in religion? Many have no real concern about God, or Christ, or the Bible, or heaven, or hell, or judgment, or eternity.
They care for nothing but what they shall eat, or what they shall drink, or what they shall put on, or what money they can get, or what pleasure they can have. It is their hearts which are in fault! They have not the least appetite for the things of God. They are destitute of any taste or inclination for spiritual things. They need a new mainspring. They want a new heart. “Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart unto it” (Prov. 17:16).
~ J.C. Ryle
