That statement begs the question, why aren't you being fed? Is the buffet open but you aren't getting out of your seat. Is the food on a plate in front of you and you don't have spoon and fork? Is the food stuck in the kitchen and never made it to your table? Or if we really dig deep, are we just not coming to the table, or picking up our own spoon and fork. Is the problem that our churches aren't feeding us or that we are not feeding ourselves.
A lot of people only go to church for one hour a week, is that you? Do you only eat one meal a week? How can you expect to know God's word, or hear God's voice and learn about God's wisdom or purpose for you if you only meet with him 1 hour a week. Think of you most intimate relationship, how much time do you invest in that relationship. It could be your spouse, your child, or your best friend. Do you only give them one hour a week? How's that working for you? Are you only eating one meal a week of God's word? You are starving scripturally.
Now what about those of you that spend a lot of time at church but you still are not feeling "full"? Ask yourself, what am I doing at church? Are you roaming around the buffet constantly to see what there is to offer, but never filling your plate? Chances are great that your church has everything you need, but you have to do something too.
It isn't the job of the church or the pastor to spoon feed you. You have to be a self feeder. You have to open God's word, you have to hear the sermon and meditate on the words you heard Sunday morning. You have to choose your small group and then do the homework. You have to make time to pray, worship and wait on the Lord. That is the only way to be fed. You have to do it daily to stay full.
When you stay full of God's word, you have the best nourishment in all of the universe. You will be better equipped to fight off "hunger" and attacks of the enemy. You will truly get to know your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. With him, you will never thirst and never hunger, but you will always want more of Him.
So pick up your spoon and fork, come to the table and feed yourself and get full. You will see a major difference in your life when you are full of the Holy Spirit and all He has to offer.
