    None but Christ can satisfy

    He who implanted that desire is the only one who can satisfy it. God is manifested in Christ, and Christ is indeed “the desire of all nations,” 1Haggai 2:7. although there are so few who will believe that in Him alone is there perfect rest and entire satisfaction. To every unsatisfied mortal the invitation is given, “O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. O fear the Lord, ye His saints; for there is no want to them that fear Him.” 1Psalm 34:8, 9.EVCO 19.3

    “How precious is Thy loving-kindness, O God! and the children of men take refuge under the shadow of Thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house; and Thou shalt make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures.” 2Psalm 36:7, 8, r.v.EVCO 20.1

    Power is what men desire in this world, and power in what the Lord wants them to have. But the power which they are seeking would ruin them, while the power which He desires them to have is power that will save them. The Gospel brings to all men this power and it is nothing less than God’s own power. Jesus Christ is “the power of God,” 31 Corinthians 1:24 so that only in Him can the longings of the heart be satisfied. Let us consider the nature of the power that he gives, for when we have discovered what it is, we shall have before us the whole Gospel.EVCO 20.2
