Episode 57 is here and we ask the question are you satisfied? Is satisfaction even guaranteed to the believer? These questions will take us to a place of finding out what we are really even looking for. Even though we say we seek God and are in a place of “godliness” we should really be asking ourselves is where is the contentment.
Also, the conversation goes further in our “A Little More Matters” bonus episodes for our Patreon family, for more info on becoming part go to www.patreon.com/realchurchmatters!
6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
1 Timothy 6:6
But godliness with contentment is great gain
Questions to ask:
What do you want?
What are you hungry for?
What are you thirsty for?
What does it mean to hunger and thirst for righteousness
Are we satisfied in righteousness?
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
What is this life He gives to the world?
Are we full of life?
2 Corinthians 11:27,12:9-10
in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
“Because he knew no contentment in his belly, he will not let anything in which he delights escape him.
If a man fathers a hundred children and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, but his soul is not satisfied with life’s good things, and he also has no burial, I say that a stillborn child is better off than he. For it comes in vanity and goes in darkness, and in darkness its name is covered. Moreover, it has not seen the sun or known anything, yet it finds rest rather than he. Even though he should live a thousand years twice over, yet enjoy no good—do not all go to the one place? All the toil of man is for his mouth, yet his appetite is not satisfied.
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
All things are full of weariness; a man cannot utter it; the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
We not satisfied with seeing it, hearing it, or having it
Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and never satisfied are the eyes of man.
As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
2 Cor 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
