Poor Mick – he ‘can’t get no satisfaction’. Poor Mick – he did not know Jesus! Are you lonely, or thirsty, or hungry, or distressed, or depressed? Then Jesus is for you! Are you dissatisfied with your place or position or past? Then Jesus can be your satisfaction. Jesus Christ can satisfy your every need:
‘As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness,’ Psalm 17:15.
‘For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness,’ Psalm 107:9.
There is a Bible word ‘propitiation’ which may be defined as ‘satisfaction,’ ‘atonement’ or ‘covering.’ That ‘satisfaction,’’covering’ or ‘atonement’ is Jesus Christ! See Romans 3:24‑25; I John 2:2; 4:10. Jesus is your best friend, John 15:14: What a Friend We Have In Jesus! Amazing Grace How Sweet the Sound! Jesus Is All the World To Me!
The great news is that you can be satisfied with Him. But even greater news, He can be satisfied with you. Think about it. Jesus traded places and died in your place, He took on your sins so God would be satisfied with you, II Corinthians 5:21. God is satisfied with each one of us in Christ, Isaiah 53:11; Ephesians 1:3, 6. ‘Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red as crimson, they shall be as white as wool,’ Isaiah 1:18.
