Spiritual Needs

This is a subsidiary post of Need.

You may find yourself in need of forgiveness, mercy, wisdom, endurance or other such spiritual resources.  These are spiritual needs, as distinguished from physical needs.

(An asterisk at the beginning of the citation indicates a reference to “need” without explicit use of that word.)

Matthew 6:33  –  “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness

Luke 12:31  –  “But seek His kingdom”

Ephesians 4:29  –  “Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”  –  The phrase “need of the moment” here and “time of need” in Hebrews 4:16 carry a similar meaning.

Hebrews 4:16  –  “so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need”  –  See note on Ephesians 4:29 above.

Hebrews 10:36  –  “For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.”

*James 1:5  –  “But if any of lacks wisdom, let him ask of God”
