"The Work of His Hands"Psalm 138:8
8 Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
Even for the most diligent and steadfast workman, there is an inherent need for rest. It is a natural and vital part of what makes us human. In the beginning God created man to need, not only nightly rest from daily toil, but it was woven into our very nature to rest our minds and bodies for one full day in seven. Rest is often the most welcomed word in our daily routine. Rest from work, rest from fear, rest from anxiety, rest from trouble. We all need rest. It is natural for the sewers hands to grow weary, the bankers mind to bog down with fatigue, and the farmers body to cry out for respite. But there are also times when we become so overwhelmed, so discouraged or so indifferent that we not only rest from our work, we outright forsake it. Sometimes all we can see when we look into the future is the endless toil of life. Work, responsibility, obedience. The never-ending demand for our time and attention can be overwhelming and outright exhausting, and it is in these moments that the frailty and shortcomings of our human nature are magnified. The Psalmist was all too familiar with the shortcomings and weakness of his own flesh. The trouble and toil of life was heavy on David’s heart and mind daily. And yet, in the midst of these times of discouragement, he was strengthened by a very powerful and foundational promise from the Lord; God never grows weary with His work. What is His work? “We are the works of His hands” and there is not a moment that the Lord rests or forsakes this work. We may grow weak, we may grow faint, but the Lord’s steadfastness and power never wain from one moment to the next! You may be experiencing a time of struggle, doubt, difficulty; a time when giving up for a short time seems like the only option. Dear Christian, the Lord is near, and He is not finished with His work in your life. You may be weak now, but He will revive you! He will strengthen you! Therefore, let us take our eyes off of the work, the struggle, and the toil, and place them back upon our Beautiful Savior. Let us run to Him to seek the care, encouragement, and the rest that we need to be renewed in our body, mind and spirit. May we join David in praying;
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
8 The Lord will accomplish what concerns me;
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
Yours in Christ,
A Cruel MasterPhilippians 2:9-11
9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the
name which is above every name,10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
As Andrew and I stood around observing the Muslim worshipers at Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Andrew remarked, “it is incredible how willing these people are to bow before Satan”. What a tragic truth this is. And not only for Muslims, but for the vast majority of people on earth. It is not only easy, but it is also natural for the sinful flesh to bow to its spiritual father. Through the Gospel every creature has access to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and yet, in spite of this, the hearts of men remain at enmity with the King through their love of wickedness. They seek the usurper because it is at the usurpers alter that the sinful flesh is insatiably indulged. Satan is not concerned with which idol a man worships, just so long as it is an idol. False religion, no religion, and the love of sin of any kind is the alter at which men love to bow. They are willing slaves to the enemy, bowing in reverence to the one who seeks to destroy their souls. And yet, there is coming a time in which every knee will bow to the true King, Jesus Christ. But even upon their judgement, the wicked souls of men will not willingly and reverently bow to Jesus. They will only bow because they will be presented with an undeniable truth and be left with no other option. Jesus is King! Just as Satan will fight the King until the day of his eternal damnation, so will those who deny Jesus in this life. This tragedy was so palpable as we wandered the corridors and grand sanctuary of Hagia Sophia. And as I gazed up near the exit there remained a mural of Jesus that had not been covered up after the Muslim occupation. Just a few feet away hundreds were bowing to Satan, while a reminder of the true King was in the next corridor. Thousands walking by and missing Jesus! Dear Christian, may we continue to hold fast to our profession, and remain humble as we bow our lives before our Savior. May we not be like the spiritually blind who miss Jesus’ call in our lives. It is easy, even for us, at times to place other things upon the throne of our lives. May we be ever so careful to never place a sinful idol in Jesus’ rightful place. Sin will always be a terrible and cruel master, and Satan will always be tempting us to give in. My prayer this week is that all of us examine our lives and if there is anything that has been placed in Jesus’ seat, let us today give back what rightfully belongs to Jesus. He is King of Kings, and He is a gentle, merciful and gracious master. May our lives be lived in subjection to His commands and may we never be stubborn in our proclamation that “Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father”.
Yours in Christ,
Open ShameDaniel 9:8
8 Open shame belongs to us, O Lord, to our kings, our princes and our fathers, because we have sinned against You.”
Daniel, in his humility before the Lord, knew exactly why Israel had fallen into exile. It had nothing to do with a lack of military might, national pride, a faltering economy, or a lack of resources. It was because Israel had embraced and practiced open sinfulness in the place of God honoring righteousness. From the highest levels of leadership in society to the common man, sin had become the commodity of Israel. And the consequences were dire indeed. A fallen, humiliated nation. Israel lost its homeland, its religious identity and its favor in the sight of God. Israel lost everything because “open shame” had become their most abundant national export. Fellow Believer, is the United States any different than Israel before us? On a national level we own “open shame” as much as any wicked nation ever has. Perhaps an even more fitting description for America would not be “open shame” but rather, “celebrated shame”. There is no question that the most abundant commodity in this country is sin. We trade it, sell it, barter with it. The unbridled desire for sinful pleasures is what drives the decision making of the vast majority in our society. It drives our corporations, health care, education, politics, institutions and nearly all facets of our economy. Drugs, sex, idolatry drives our entertainment industries. Selfishness and murder drives our abortion industry. Bitterness, unforgiveness and rabid vengeance drives the race baiting industry. Pride and perversion drives the LGBTQ industry. Overall, a hatred of God’s righteous truths are the fuel this country is driven by, and all of this is wrapped up with the main sinful driving force around our entire political and social system; Greed. We can’t even be sold insurance, food, vehicles or any other thing without also being sold homosexuality, pedophilia, sensuality, drugs, divisiveness, idolatry and endless other sins. And this open shame has had major consequences. We are a country in decline, because a country is only as strong and righteous as its individual parts. The state of the country simply exposes the spiritual state of the individual. In his sorrow, as Daniel sat alone contemplating all that was lost because of Israel’s unfaithfulness to God, he came to the conclusion that just as national shame starts at the individual level, so does national repentance. One man, bowing before God, confessing the sins of his nation and his own sins. This is a great reminder to all of us. Repentance and humility begins on the individual level before it can ever be experienced in our society. One humble, repentant man will lead to one humble and repentant family. A collection of these families will lead to a healthy, humble and obedient local Church. A collection of God-fearing Churches will lead to a national voice that is firm in the truth and unwavering in the face of depravity and persecution. While it is right for us to speak out and stand up against the sinful open shame that surrounds us, it is just as important to take an inventory right in the “home” of our own hearts. What sinful commodity are you and I still trading with on a daily basis? Which sins have crept into our homes and have caused us to harden our hearts towards the Lord and His Church? Is there any open shame in your life that you haven’t dealt with? Animosity, anger, sexual sin, hatred, bitterness or the like? Dear Brethren in Christ, let’s make today the day that we humbly come before the Lord in repentance so that our hearts, homes and Church can thrive in our obedience and calling as we rest in the Lord’s incredible mercy and grace!
Yours in Christ,
Proper Worship1 Chronicles 15:1
1 Chronicles 15:1
1 After David had constructed buildings for himself in the City of David, he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it.
The Ark of the Covenant was the very centerpiece of earthly worship of the Lord. It contained the most important message that man had ever received from God up to this point in history…the 10 Commandments. And the importance of the ark was not lost on David. It had spent 3 months in the home of Obed-edom for safe keeping, but David knew its rightful home was at the center of Jewish worship and life in Jerusalem. Notice, that the ark of God was not intended to be brought to Jerusalem with ill-conceived haste, or with a careless, indifferent attitude, but rather, with careful preparation. David “prepared a place for” it, in a tent, in the style that Moses was commanded in the wilderness. He also planned a great celebration to receive the ark into Jerusalem. He appointed a full band with trumpets, harps, cymbals and psalms. In addition, he appointed approved Levites to carry the ark, and he held feasts. David took great care and preparation to worship God in a way that was pleasing to Him and showed his humble and exuberant attitude of worship. But there is something else of great importance to consider; David also prepared buildings for himself and his family near the ark. It was David’s intent that his family be cared for and live near enough to the ark that they would always be reminded of God’s presence, favor and love for Israel. Near enough so that they would always have a ready reminder and an established place to worship the Lord. There can be no doubt that David took proper worship of the Lord very seriously. He “prepared”. Not only a place of worship, but an attitude of worship. Today, dear Christian, we do not have to visit the ark of God to experience the very real presence of the Lord, we do not have to position ourselves within close proximity to a building to be near to God. As God’s people, we are now living temples of God! The Law is now written on our hearts, not on stone, the Spirit of God now dwells in all who are in Christ, not in an earthly building. Therefore, wherever we are, God is there among us. However, that brings us to a very sobering question; how do we preparing these temples for worship? First, worship begins in the home. A home that is in ununified, unpeaceful, discontent, in dysfunction and disconnected from each other is not a home that is prepared for worship. A home that is preparing for worship is a home that is filled with love, encouragement, joy, peace, gratitude, prayer, kindness, grace and compassion. Unity is a very important part of true worship. If you have ever been at odds with your spouse or the brethren, you know that your ability to worship suffers greatly. Being disconnected from God’s people makes us disconnected with God. And the correlation is obvious, how can we worship God when we are angry, bitter or harsh with another in whom the Lord is dwelling? Next, worship continues wherever we go. Isn’t it true that we often view Sunday mornings as the pinnacle of weekly worship, and yet, many of you, perhaps, do not even prepare well for that time of worship! Rushing around, showing up late or just in the nick of time, not even considering corporate worship until the moment is upon you. If this is true, then I wonder how seriously we take the other 166 hours of the week if we cannot even be bothered to prepare for the two hours we spend together!? Preparing for worship is not an event, because true worship is not an event, it is a lifestyle. Beloved of Christ, living lives with the idea of keeping our hearts tender towards the Lord and ready for worship will cost us much. David’s preparation cost him immensely. He built buildings, spent lavishly on feasts, bands, parades and attendants for all of Israel. It will cost us much too; our pride and selfishness. How can we prepare our homes for worship then? Husbands, love, cherish, encourage and uplift your wives with your words; this is true worship of God. Wives, honor, respect and submit to your husband in reverence; this is true worship of God. Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right; this is true worship of God. Brethren, love, forgive, defer to and encourage each other; this is true worship of God. God honoring worship is not a moment, it is a lifestyle of surrender and sacrifice to the leading of the Spirit of God within us. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”
Yours in Christ,
"Simple" KindnessEphesians 4:32
32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted…
Perhaps there is no Fruit of the Spirit that is more overlooked than the seemingly “simple” fruit of kindness. And yet, if producing kindness was so simple, then all of us would be overflowing with kindness at all times! However, isn’t it often so true that one of the things we lack the most with those that we are closest with is “simple” kindness? And the reason for this is because kindness is the antithesis to selfishness. You can’t be both kind and selfish at the same time, because kindness is not simply a good temperament and intention towards others, it is good intentions followed by action. Kindness encompasses two very important principles. First, kindness is a pre-determined disposition of heart. Kindness is an even temperament of love, honor, curtesy, peace, and tenderness towards others. I say pre-determined because we must always be ready under any circumstance to show kindness. Kindness is not subject to situations. A disposition of kindness does not say, “I will be kind if, you are kind to me.” It says, “I have already, even now, decided I will be kind to you even if you are not kind to me, now, or at any time in the future.” If we do not determine, at this moment that in all future situations we will show kindness, then, you and I will probably fail to be kind when it is needed the most. Kindness determines that there is not a time or a situation in which we will not extend grace, mercy, benevolence, and love. We will be kind, because God has changed the disposition of our hearts from self-love, self-pride, self-righteousness, and selfishness…to humility, charity, and tenderness. So, kindness starts with a disposition of the heart…”I will be kind no matter what”, but what good is kindness if it is only an internal tenderness? This is why true kindness next produces a usefulness to each other. God first showed us kindness by loving us while we were yet sinners, but that kindness then produced a usefulness to us. God’s kindness compelled Him to produced a way to salvation through Jesus Christ. Therefore, biblical kindness also produces a usefulness to others. A faith that says, “good luck, I hope you make it out there on your own”, isn’t a true faith, because it does not produce one of the fruits of a real faith. Kindness. Kindness doesn’t just wish someone luck with their problems, needs and concerns. Kindness, sympathizes, empathizes, and then mobilizes. There is perhaps no other story in the NT that gives us as excellent of an example of the usefulness of kindness in action, than the parable of the Good Sarmatian. A Samaritan man gave up his time, resources and his pride in order to help a Jewish man who hated him and probably would not have cared for him in the same way. And what does Jesus say after telling this powerful parable? He says, “go, and do the same.” The usefulness of kindness in action will call you to serve each other and give up your time and resources for each other. However, when it is the Holy Spirit producing this fruit in you, your service won’t be forced, it won’t be done with grumbling or complaining. Your service to each other will be done with joy, thankfulness, and love. Therefore, the fruit of kindness is a matter of both heart and hand. Dear Christian, in Christ, God has given us a heart of kindness. My prayer this week is that we recommit ourselves to producing this powerful and important fruit. I know that I have a long way to go in producing this “simple” kindness, how about you?
Yours in Christ,
The Better MasterGalatians 4:8
8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods.
Worship is a deeply instinctual aspect of the nature of man. Simply put, man cannot help it, we must worship something. And so, what a tragedy that anyone would be so grossly ignorant of God that they would elevate any number of random, everyday items, persons and ideologies into the position of a “god” in their lives. But such is the nature of fallen man; created to worship, and yet, because of sin, lacking a knowledge of whom we were created to worship. Mankind is lost in a sea of ideas, superstitions, ideologies and cults of personalities. And yet, isn’t it interesting that these lost men, the world over, are so zealous for their “god”? Slaves to “gods” who by their very nature and definition are not gods at all! And yet, man remains deeply devoted to these idols. There is no end to the “gods” of the world. To some their god is “science” (the science they serve is not science at all), education, materialism, sex, homosexuality, drugs and much more. To others their god is a celebrity, “Mother Earth,” naturalism, government, or spiritualism. Of course, this is to say nothing of the over 4,000 religions worldwide that men devote their entire lives, attention and worship to. Rather than simply existing without any form of god, man cannot help but to fix their attention on something in which to elevate to a place of godlike status in their lives. In doing so, men become slaves to completely useless, dead, inanimate ideas and objects. Bowing, serving and zealously worshipping…literally nothing! “Gods” that are unable to help, answer prayer, heal and, most importantly, offer salvation. And yet, the fervor in which these lost souls serve their “gods” often puts the zeal of service and worship of many Christians to shame. Dear Christian, think for a moment, if you can, of the various gods that you served before your eyes were opened to the Living God. Was there anything that would stop you from serving your “god” with all your heart, soul and mind? Alcohol, materialism, sex, education or whatever your god may have been, these things were the very focus of your living and breathing. Slaves to death. However, today we praise the Lord that those days are over! “8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods.” However, there remains a question for all of us today. Did you, perhaps, serve your former “god” with more zeal, fire and fervency than you do Jesus Christ? I know our knee jerk reaction is “no way!” But knee jerk reactions are not helpful to us. Are you really serving and worshipping Jesus Christ more than you served your former god? I have seen people at various music concerts, and it always saddens me to see the excitement, zeal and joy that fills their hearts at a concert, and then see their disinterested, critical, and uncaring attitudes during cooperate Christian worship on a Sunday morning. There are people who are willing to give up their children, jobs, marriages and livelihoods for the sake of alcohol, drugs, sex and much more…and yet, are we willing to give up even our simple comfort to share the Gospel with another person. We often say we are committed to God, and yet the overwhelming majority of our lives are spent on menial, selfish, and worldly-minded ideas and tasks. Dear Believers, we now know God! Or rather, He knows us! We are in the service of a much better Master than we were formerly. What an amazing truth this is, so amazing, I think it is far past the time that we worship and serve God with even more fire and fervor than we have ever served anything before! The Lord is worthy of all of our praise, all of our time, all of our hearts and all of our faith. Let’s continue to grow in our zeal for worship and service to Jesus Christ. We are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let’s spur one another on to “live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”
Yours in Christ,
God's PossessionZechariah 2:11
11 “Many nations will join themselves to the Lord in that day and will become My people. Then I will dwell in your midst, and you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you.
The desire to belong and identify with a group of likeminded people is a deep need in our human nature. Primarily we were created to know and be known by our Creator and to be in a right and everlasting relationship with Him. However, from the moment Adam sinned, that relationship was severed and man lost his most meaningful purpose in creation which left us scrambling to fill the relationship void. Everyone the world over is constantly searching for a way to find acceptance and meaningful relationship in one way or another. Many look to team sports, clubs, societies, co-workers and many other things simply in search of one thing; to belong to something that gives a sense of meaning and purpose in life. Others turn to darker pursuits to find a community, including drugs, alcohol and even LGBTQ sexual perversion. But all these group identities are merely sinful perversions of what man was created for and who man was created to belong to. To the unbeliever, there will be no end to the pursuit of fitting in and finding something or someone to enhance an otherwise “meaningless” life. And yet, an unbeliever can search the world over and still never find any lasting reason for his existence outside of Jesus Christ. As one billionaire lamented upon his deathbed, “that was interesting, I wonder what it was all for?” And yet, fellow Believer, while the world is seeking relationship and meaning in the most worthless, sinful and trivial of things, we praise the Lord for the joy of being in close fellowship with our Creator and belonging to the most meaningful and joyful thing in all the universe…the Kingdom of Heaven. We are citizens of an eternal Kingdom, ruled by the eternal King of Kings, Jesus Christ! In this Kingdom we are free from fear, anxiety, hopelessness, a meaningless life, and most importantly…death. What an unfathomable joy it is to know that the Spirit of the Living God dwells in the midst of His people! Dear Christian, my hope for you this day is that you both realize and celebrate the incredible privilege it is to be called God’s possession and to be counted among His people. We no longer have to search to belong or search to find true and lasting relationship, we have been granted every spiritual blessing in Christ! We belong to God, as a dear child belongs to his loving father, as a dear sheep belongs to its caring shepherd. And there will never be a time, neither now nor in eternity when this claim that the Holy Spirit has placed on your heart as a seal of belonging will ever be removed, shaken or destroyed! All of us have felt alone at times, forgotten, unimportant, and have struggled with earthly relationships, but take courage, you will never be forgotten by the One who paid it all to restore a right relationship with you! You are precious to God and what God deems precious He will never throw away! “In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.” (Ephesians 1:13-14)
Yours in Christ,
"The Cleansing Stream"Amos 5:24
24 “But let justice roll down like waters
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Much like in our own time, Israel was living in the lap of luxury during one of the most prosperous times in the nation’s history. Outwardly, the lives of the people glimmered with the rays of success! It was a time when comfort, ease and carefree living ruled the hearts of the people. But another thing also ruled their hearts; corruption and rebellion against God. Their hearts and lives became cisterns of extreme moral decay. Therefore, again, much like in our own time, Amos lived during a time when justice and righteousness were in extremely short supply. Israel had participated in abominable idolatrous religious practices under Solomon’s son Jeroboam and the people had become a corrupt nation with hearts that were hardened towards God. They had become a nation of hypocrites. Attempting to please God with religious ceremonies and superficial duties while simultaneously worshipping the false gods of the surrounding nations. Instead of serving God with justice, humility, love, and mercy, they embraced arrogance, materialism, immorality, and self-righteousness. To think that this incredibly prosperous nation would be conquered and exiled by the Assyrians in less than 40 years was a laughable idea to these haughty people. And yet, that was the subject of Amos’ prophecy which came true in 722 B.C. In many ways, America is the 21st century A.D. reflection of 8th century B.C. Israel. A wicked nation clinging to a long past Christian identity. Oh, how true when Solomon wrote “there is nothing new under the sun.” America is in moral and religious freefall. Not passively falling, but racing to the bottom with all her might. And yet, it was in these times of moral bankruptcy and degeneracy that God called His people back to justice and righteousness. Like a single raindrop in the ocean, Amos’ single voice of truth was crying out in the vast sea of decay. And the message was simple; justice and righteousness. Justice; to do that is right and fitting. To obey the ordinances of God. To return to a heart that is softened to the truth and obedient to proper worship of God. To uphold a standard of truth. In addition, justice holds a meaning of judgement and retribution too. Should a nation fail at justice, destruction by its own hand will ever be near, and judgment by God will be unavoidable. But when we return to God, the promise is not that justice will fall like a single raindrop, but that it will fall like a waterfall, cleansing the land, rolling over the decay as flood waters wash away the refuse of a landscape of squalor. Next righteousness; there is nothing that will cleanse the hearts and minds of the people like righteousness. And of course, we cannot manufacture righteousness apart from Jesus Christ. If we seek any righteousness on our own it will only produce filth. Therefore, we must seek the righteousness that is from Christ. The ever-flowing river of God’s grace continually covers our own worthlessness with the worthiness of the Lamb of God! First, let us return to justice and righteousness as the people of God. May we bear the name of Christ, not as hypocrites, but as those dedicated to the service and fidelity to our Lord and Savior. Next, we are given a similar task as Amos; to stand up for justice and righteousness in the midst of moral degeneracy. But our message is the message of the Gospel! The Gospel has the power not only to change the heart of one single person, but like a river of endless mercy, grace and love, the Gospel has, and will continue to have the power cleanse the hearts of millions! Therefore, shout the Gospel with compassion and boldness and always stand firm in the truth dear friends. Never wavering, never remaining silent. The only force powerful enough to stay the tide of ever-encroaching darkness is the cleansing River of Life, our savior Jesus Christ!
Yours in Christ,
"My Soul is Satisfied"Psalm 63:5
5 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.
It’s hard to imagine a time of the year when the joy of this verse is more meaningful and true than it is this week following Easter Sunday! The Christian has been filled to the overflowing with God’s blessings in Christ Jesus! Because God’s wrath has been satisfied in the cross, our souls are satisfied in the joy of salvation. Satisfied in the hope of heaven and satisfied in the abundant grace, mercy and love of our Lord! We could never indulge in the blessings of salvation to the point where we would ever exhaust God’s heavenly storehouse of these graces for His children. Like the widow of Zarephath, daily we can partake of the oil and refreshment of God’s grace, and be filled to satisfaction! I pray that you, fellow Believer, find great strength and rest in the fact that your soul is in a state of complete satisfaction in Jesus. There is nothing that this world could offer that would ever, or could ever compare to the complete freedom and rest we have in Jesus Christ. My soul is satisfied indeed! Surely then, when David first recorded Psalm 63, he too must have been standing on the mountain top of celebratory joy and victory! However, history paints a different picture for us. David wrote this Psalm of praise not when his life was filled with the overflowing blessings of joyful circumstances, but rather during one of his life’s most trying moments. David penned this Psalm when he was hiding in the desert wilderness of Judah as he fled either from Saul (1 Samuel 23) or when he was fleeing from his son Absolom (2 Samuel 15:13-30). In this dry, desolate, and unforgiving environment, there was no doubt that David was in great want of shelter, food and water. His body literally hungered and thirsted for physical refreshment and respite. However, in the midst of his great physical need, he found his greatest comfort not in the thought of being satisfied with food and water, but in the satisfaction and joy of salvation in God. Outwardly he was in great want, but inwardly he was full…satisfied in the Lord. What a beautiful picture of the true condition of the soul of a Christian! Outwardly we all face various trials, health concerns and suffering in all their various forms. And yet, each of us should be able to declare, as David did, “my soul is completely satisfied” in Christ alone. There is no question that our bodies, even though they are wasting away, are still in need of constant care, attention, refreshment, and nourishment, and yet they will never be satisfied. But your soul, dear Christian, has been satisfied once and for all through the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We have partaken of the Living Water, the Bread of Life. And all who eat and drink of this will never hunger or thirst again!
All this world, its wealth and honor,
Cannot sate the human breast;
But when filled with God, our Father,
Every want is fully blest.
My soul is satisfied,
My soul is satisfied;
I am complete in Jesus’ love,
And my soul is satisfied.
Yours in Christ,
