Gospel Satisfaction

The fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.
Romans 15:29

One of the devastating consequences of the fall was that it left man with a deep void in his soul. Something is missing. Ever since that dark day, men have spent their lives looking for something to fill their souls emptiness. Sadly, they spend money for that which is not bread . . . and . . . labour for that which satisfieth not (Isa. 55:2).

But God's child has discovered that blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled (Matt. 5:6). Paul beautifully expresses this truth in the words the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ. Because he was filled with the gospel, the apostle was fully satisfied. Paul knew well the truth that so few believers seem to experience: none but Christ can satisfy! Doubting, seeking acceptance from man, thinking that fame or fortune will bring happiness are all the sad lot of a Christian who has yet to learn what Paul enjoyed.

First, he was satisfied with Christs merits. This one-time Pharisee learned that he could never earn Gods pardon, Gods peace, or Gods righteousness. But he rejoiced in the glorious truth that Christ had earned them for him by His perfect life and sacrificial death. There is no power that can ever take Christs merits from us. What a ground for assurance!

But Paul was also satisfied with Christs mercy. Some believers are always looking for the love and affection of others. But dear, lonely child of God, what love is there like Christs love? To think you are loved without limit, at all times, in all your weakness and failuresurely His love is better than wine (Song of Sol. 1:2).

And was not Paul also satisfied with Christs mind? Paul suffered the loss of all his privileges in the Jews religion and counted them as dung that he might know Christ. That meant being filled with the mind of Christ (Phil. 2:5-8), a mind of self-denial, service, and sacrifice. Oh, that we might enjoy more of this fulness today!

When Christ reveals Himself there is satisfaction in the slenderest portion, and without Christ there is emptiness in the greatest fulness.
