Satisfaction in Serving the Lord

David Gooding

Beware of tiny gospels and little gospels—we need a gospel big enough to satisfy our intellects as well as our hearts and to satisfy the enquiring minds, searching souls and unfulfilled spirits that are all around us.

Synopsis

To find true, real, deep, profound satisfaction in serving the Lord:

1. we have to have a task big enough for our abilities—a task commensurate with our gifts and not too far below them;

2. we shall need a settled conviction that there shall be a reward adequate to compensate us for the sufferings and sacrifices we endure;

3. we shall derive a tremendous amount of satisfaction if we have a gospel that is enough to satisfy the thirst and hunger of a perishing world around us. Beware of tiny gospels and little gospels—we need a gospel big enough to satisfy our intellects as well as our hearts and to satisfy the enquiring minds, searching souls and unfulfilled spirits that are all around us.

We rightly celebrate the tremendous work our Lord has done on our behalf, that infinitely precious work. But how lovely it is, and what sacred things these are, to be allowed an insight into his heart as he was doing the work; what he felt like and some of the thoughts that went through his mind, and his ambitions. Said he, ‘I have food to eat that you do not know about . . . My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work’ (John 4:32–34).
