Category Archives: Satisfaction Sundays

How can we find greater and greater satisfaction in God? By knowing that, through the work of Jesus Christ and the Spirit, God the Father finds great satisfaction in all who follow Jesus by faith in Him.

In this series I will be highlighting this amazing love as we read through His Word over the year.

God’s love for His people because of Christ should be our focus every day, but it’s especially appropriate for Sundays.

Most Christians observe the Lord’s Sabbath (rest) on Sunday probably because the early church intentionally moved their worship from the historic sixth day Sabbath to a first day Sabbath. (Acts 20:7 and 1 Corinthians 16:2) Why? In Old Testament times, they looked forward to the rest they would receive from God through the Messiah. Now we recognize that we look back on what the Messiah, Jesus, has accomplished in His death and resurrection. And we look forward to His return when we will come for His people to live with Him in perfect joy forever.

For Jesus said, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Luke 12:32-34)
