Pleasure In God

From creation we can see that God desire us to have pleasure.

"And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food." (Gen 2:9).

He purposely made the trees to be pleasant to the sight. And its fruits were pleasant in taste. Not just trees, but everything he made was pleasant. Beauty everywhere, so pleasant to the sight. Different flavors in plants, fruits, meets, and drinks, so pleasant in taste. He made music, pleasant to the ears. And even our touch has different sensitive and pleasure spot. Then there are different scent, pleasant to perceive. 

Such gracious (pleasant) creation, all pointing to the Christ who bring grace (true pleasure in God) and truth (reality). Yes, God is the reality that every other reality points to, he is the pleasure that we were designed to enjoy. Every other preach of Him — yes they preach of the coming of the Christ who will give us access into God and enjoy this ultimate reality.

We are designed for pleasure. We have not been taught to find pleasure in God and that's why we look for it in all the wrong places. You cannot teach a people to be serious all the time when there is a vacuum for pleasure that needs to be filled. They will end up fulfilling that desire the wrong way. We must learn to find pleasure in God, to enjoy his grace (his pleasantness).

This reality called God (Christ) is so pleasing. This love, this truth, this experience — oh an endless experience — this is real pleasure. This is the life! We are enjoying life 😂😂. You can't taste this and still feel empty. Every other thing is insatiable — you will keep consuming and consuming till that thing you call pleasure destroys you. But this God is satisfaction; you will just know you have found the real thing. Oh this is REAL!
