When you taste and seen the Lord, nothing else satisfies!
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8
A few years ago, after a long day at work, I went to MY refrigerator to get a glass of tea. My wife’s sister and brother-in-law had come over for dinner. I opened the fridge, grabbed the jug, poured me a BIG ole glass, turned it up, and went to guzzling. YUCK! Who put unsweet tea in MY fridge???? Well, to make this story short, my wife had made my brother-in-law the pitcher of tea. But since then He has been converted! He’s a sweet tea man now!
You may ask, “What in the world does this have to do with the Christian life?” When you have tasted and seen what the Lord can do for you the fake imitations of this world will not satisfy! No matter what you try to substitute that relationship with nothing else satisfies like having a relationship with the Lord!
Relationships come in all sorts and sizes. They may be wrapped in some pretty paper, a nice paint job, a fat pay check, a gallon jug, or a great figure. They may even bring happiness for a while, but the joy that comes when you have tasted and seen the real deal, the Lord Jesus…NOTHING tastes the same! Not even sweet tea!
