The Secret of Real Satisfaction

Matthew 5:3-12
Rev. Johnny Wong

I. Why are many people unsatisfied?
Look in the wrong places:-
1) Pleasure
 8 All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:8

2) Performance
23 All his days his work is pain and grief; even at night his mind does not rest. This too is meaningless.                    ~ Ecclesiastes 2:23

3) Possessions
10Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless. ~ Ecclesiastes 5:10

II. How to experience real satisfaction?
4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. ~ Psalms 37:4

1) Recognize my real hunger
3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. ~ Deuteronomy 8:3

2) Look to Jesus
35 Then Jesus declared, I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. ~ John 6:35

51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live for ever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. ~ John 6:51

13 Jesus answered, Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.     Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. ~ John 4:13-14
