Satisfied

"I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness" (Psa. 17:15).

Satisfaction can be a relative term. For instance, a man may be satisfied with a second-hand car while he saves his money for a new one; or with a cheap camera until he can afford a good one.

I am satisfied with Christ, not in a relative sense but fully and completely. "He satisfieth the longing soul and the hungry soul He filleth with good". He has satisfied me and I want no other.

In writing to the Corinthians the apostle Paul spoke about three 'anothers'. "For", said he, "if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him" (2 Cor. 11:4 A.V.).

I do not want another Jesus or another spirit or another gospel. As clearly and as definitely as I can state it, my confession is this - I am satisfied with Christ.

But I am not satisfied with myself. I'm a wayward child, an unworthy son, a poor witness and an unprofitable servant. I long that Christ might be magnified in me, for men must see in me such a small and poor image of Christ. However, praise the Lord, the prospect is good. One day I shall be like Him. God will fashion anew the body of my humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of His glory. That will be a wonderful day, for then - I shall be satisfied when I awake with His likeness.

"When I shall gaze upon the face of Him

Who died for me, with eye no longer dim,

And praise Him with the everlasting hymn,

I shall be satisfied - be satisfied."
