The Dissatisfied Life

Sunday morning my pastor issued this challenge during his sermon: You know, friends, a life of dissatisfaction is a blessed life. Uh-oh! What did I say? Yes, I said it. A life of dissatisfaction is a blessed life. Listen to what Jesus says in Matthew 5:6. It says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be [what?] they shall be satisfied.” See, the more we hunger for God the more we want to know Him. The more we know Him, the more we’ll find ourselves being satisfied. And so the call for us is that we should never be satisfied with where we are, but we must find ourselves hungering and thirsting for righteousness. How can a Christian avoid a dissatisfied life?

Are you dissatisfied today? Do you recognize your own need to grow “in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”? Do you hunger and thirst for the righteousness of Jesus in your life?

Come to the source today, my friend, and partake deeply of the Bread of Life and the Living Water, which alone can satisfy you.
