A Hunger for the Word

First Lieutenant Albert Goodloe, of the Thirty-fifth, Alabama, was a believer who had a burden to distribute God’s Word. He wrote in his diary:

While here at Morton we received a good supply of Bibles, Testaments, hymn books, and tracts, which had heretofore been ordered. The need of these we had felt very keenly for some time in carrying forward our religious undertakings … they came to a multitude of new converts to the religion of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to many more who were earnest inquirers after the truth … To be sure there were never many of us who were never without our pocket Bibles, but there were many others who had none, having lost theirs or worn them out … and especially did we have an urgent need for a good supply of hymn books. What a mighty chorus of voices there was raised in songs of praises to our God by the soldiers when the hymn books were given out in the congregation!

Soldiers in the Civil War were more eager for Bibles than any other time in our history. Goodloe said that many of the soldiers had worn out their Bibles and needed new ones. It is no surprise that revivals broke out in the camps of Northern and Southern soldiers. When there is a hunger for the righteousness of God, the Lord promises to fill it.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Matthew 5:6
