Learning To Enjoy More

By God's grace, I'm learning to enjoy more things by being satisfied in Jesus. The combination of Mark 8-9, Together for the Gospel Conference, and J.D. Greer's new book, Gospel, have conspired to teach me that, "Learning to be satisfied in Jesus will free you to enjoy everything else."

This is the irony of the Christian life. You can't enjoy things and people by depending on them for satisfaction. The only way to enjoy "everything else" is by being satisfied in Jesus. Jesus said, "whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it." When we are satisfied with all that Jesus is for us, we can begin to enjoy all the good things we have because of Jesus.

God gives us richly all things to enjoy!

As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.
(1 Timothy 6:17 ESV)

Hope in God, not the things of the world. Then you can enjoy the things of the world. Right?
