We can never use the language of the Laodicean church and say, `We have need of nothing.' Our needs are great but the Lord's resources are inexhaustible. Here are some kinds of needs mentioned in the New Testament:
Material—Matt. 6. 32; Phil. 4. 12, 16—`Your Father knoweth'.
Physical—Luke 9. 11—`All who had need of healing'.
Personal—Luke 10. 42—Quiet time alone with the Lord, at His feet.
Moral—John 13. 10—Daily cleansing: need to wash our feet.
Social—1 Cor. 12. 21—Need of fellowship: fellow-members of Christ.
Spiritual—Heb. 10. 36—`Ye have need of patience'.
Mental—James 1. 5-1f any man lack wisdom let him ask of God'.
(Phil. 4. 19)
