The Satisfaction of Walking With Jesus

Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones sing, “I can’t get no satisfaction.” Lots of people can identify with that song. Though we try and we try and we try and try, we can’t get no satisfaction. We seem to always want more.
In John 7, the Feast of Tabernacles was taking place. One of the rituals that took place during the festival was that each day, a solemn procession took place each day from the temple to the Gihon Spring. A priest filled a gold pitcher with water while the choir sang Isaiah 12:3. Then, they returned to the altar and poured out the water. This ritual reminded. them of the water. from the rock during their wilderness wanderings. It also spoke prophetically of the coming days of the Messiah.
The last day of the festival was its greatest. On that day, Jesus stood and said, “Come to Me and drink.” This was an offer of salvation. Jesus said, “Streams of living water will flow from within a person who believes in Jesus. That is, the person will have a continual source of satisfaction.
Think about that… Jesus is promising us a continual source of satisfaction if we commit our lives to Him.
How does that happen? Well first, our hearts are changed. And when our heart is changed, our lives are changed. The things that once were important, aren’t important any more or, at the least, they aren’t as significant.
So, question for us; are you happy? Do you experience satisfaction? You can… if you are committed to Christ. When you are committed to Christ, you have peace.
As the song goes;
“I’ve got peace like a river, I’ve got peace like a river.
I’ve got peace like a river, In my soul.
I’ve got peace like a river, I’ve got peace like a river.
I’ve got peace like a river in my soul.”
