Only Jesus Satisfies

This devotional is brought to you by Pacific Press® Publishing Association.

When it comes to God's gifts, one of our greatest problems is not that we're unaware of them, but that we don't receive them. Most people read the Bible for information, not transformation; they don't really "eat" or ingest it. Let's look at what the Bible says is as satisfying as the finest meal: "Because your love is better than life, my soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods" (Psalm 63:3-5). Is that true for you? Does God's love satisfy you as much as an elegant meal or an incredible dessert? God's love will satisfy us - if we receive it. In fact, the only thing that truly satisfies is intimacy with God. Everything else leaves us hungry.

     Jeremiah said, "When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight," (Jeremiah 15:16). When we receive God's words into our lives, we are actually receiving Jesus Himself. In this way, we can really experience what His love is like because He is the essence of love.
