Look at Christ, my dear friend: His life was divine through and through, full of self-denial, and He did everything for mankind, finding His satisfaction and His delight in the dissolution of His material being.
There is indescribable joy, deep satisfaction and an eternal purpose in dying to ourselves and living for Christ.
The Law saith, Where is thy righteousness, goodness, and satisfaction? The Gospel saith, Christ is thy righteousness, goodness, and satisfaction.
God does not give grace freely in the sense that He will demand no satisfaction, but He gave Christ to be the satisfaction for us.
Without the renewed mind, we will distort the Scriptures to avoid their radical commands for self-denial, and love, and purity, and supreme satisfaction in Christ alone.
Ich denke, also bin ich kein Christ.
The Bible is the cradle wherein Christ is laid.
Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.
