Today’s Devotional: Satisfied in Christ

Satisfaction can be an elusive thing, especially when we try to find it on our own. Buying a new TV or starting a new relationship might make us feel better for a while, but eventually those feelings of newness and completeness fade and leave us in the same spot we were before.

True satisfaction can only be found in Christ, and as we read in this devotional from Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening, Christ satisfies us forever:

When Jesus is the host, no guest goes empty from the table. Our head is satisfied with the precious truth which Christ reveals; our heart is content with Jesus, as the altogether lovely object of affection; our hope is satisfied, for whom have we in heaven but Jesus? and our desire is satiated, for what can we wish for more than “to know Christ and to be found in him?” Jesus fills our conscience till it is at perfect peace; our judgment with persuasion of the certainty of his teachings; our memory with recollections of what he has done, and our imagination with the prospects of what he is yet to do.

Read the rest at Christian Classics Ethereal Library.

Is it hard or easy for you to turn to Christ to find satisfaction?

    Good Morning, I thank God for you all and I thank God for this post.. He always provides a way. I am so thankful to God for the many blessings he has stored upon my life and I am especially thankful for the ones yet to be revealed. Thank you Father God my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I also thank you for allowing me to be a part of the new thing you are doing, using ordinary people to do extra ordinary things and for giving me the gift,the tool,the book, “Learn the Alphabet with the Spirit” to use to edify your name and build your kingdom. I market it with great honor. Thank you for your grace and mercy. Our salvation lies in you. For it is in Jesus name I give thanks and Jesus name I pray. Amen Amen Amen

  • My constant challenge is to turn to Christ first, not after I have tried to do things the way I think is best and even as He would want them and made a bigger mess for Him to clean up. It isn’t that it is difficult for me, it is that I am a lifelong overachiever and love challenges. This is the big challenge: To let go of my pride and let HIM rightfully assume the lead role in all things and all times. When that becomes so natural that it is like taking a breath without thinking about it, it will be REAL.

  • The Legend of the Sand Dollar

    There’s a lovely little legend
    that I would like to tell,
    of the birth and death of Jesus,
    found in this lowly shell.

    If you examine closely,
    you’ll see that you find here,
    four nail holes and a fifth one,
    made by a Roman’s spear.

    On one side the Easter lily,
    its center is the star,
    that appeared unto the shepherds
    and led them from afar.

    The Christmas Poinsettia
    etched on the other side,
    reminds us of His birthday,
    our happy Christmastide.

    Now break the center open,
    and here you will release,
    the five white doves awaiting,
    to spread Good Will and Peace.

    This simple little symbol,
    Christ left for you and me,
    to help us spread His Gospel,
    through all Eternity.

    I have a friend who is a faithful follower of Christ, who is a Christian and is very dear to me but struggles with satisfaction in life. I want to help her but not sure what to say because this person knows God’s word but can’t seem to find the peace He provides us. I pray each day that God will give me the words to say to help but nothing seems to come out right. What can I do to help this person?
