Unlimited: You Will Be Satisfied in the Kingdom of God
Jan 9, 2017 1206
“I am the bread of life: He that comes to me shall never hunger; and He that believes on me shall never thirst (John 6:35).”
I once saw two photos. In the first one, all the possessions of a typical family in the USA were piled up on their front lawn, and it was an enormous pile! In the second photo, all the possessions of a typical family in the third world were spread out on a single blanket.
At the end of their lives, most people wish that they could have another day, week, or even another minute of time with their loved ones. What matters most is not the stuff, but the people. The trap of falling into the rat race is that you never become satisfied. It tells you that you were never chasing the right thing to start with.
That’s why Jesus tells us firstly who He is: He is the “bread of life”; the Source. And then Jesus tells us what He can do for us: “he that comes to Me shall never hunger; and he that believes on Me shall never thirst.” Christ is the One who satisfies, and nothing else will do.
Jesus tells us to put Him and His Kingdom first, and then we’ll have everything we need, and more. Because in His Kingdom, there’s always much more than enough. – Eliezer Gonzalez
Eli’s Reflection: Is there an area in your life in which you are not satisfied? What is it that you still need to do, achieve or receive? If you never did, would Jesus still be enough for you? Think deeply about this, and then go into prayer, asking Christ to be everything for you, so that you may be completely satisfied in Him.
