“All you people who are thirsty, come! Here is water for you to drink. Don’t worry if you have no money. Come, eat and drink until you are full! You don’t need money. The milk and wine are free. Why waste your money on something that is not real food? Why should you work for something that does not really satisfy you? Listen closely to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the food that satisfies your soul. Isaiah 55:1-2
The Rolling Stones sang “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” – I beg to differ with them, as they were just looking in the wrong places to find it. Trying to find satisfaction in this life from people and things incapable of providing it just leaves us wanting – wanting the next, the new, the novel – none of which ever satisfies.
Satisfaction isn’t hard to find, it has already come once, and will come back again. Best of all it’s absolutely free.
26a, 27 Jesus answered them…“Do not work for the food which perishes, but for that food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For God the Father has set His seal on Him.”
29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.”
32a, 33 Then Jesus said…”For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
35, 40 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me shall never hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst… This is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”
Full, over-flowing satisfaction has come to us, the question is this: Will you choose to be satisfied in Him who has everything you need?
