The Ultimate Satisfaction — Funeral Sermon


The following is a funeral sermon I have used when sharing about the life of a committed believer. It is based on a desire David expressed at the end of Ps 17.


Psalm 17: 14 With Your hand from men, O LORD,
         From men of the world who have their portion in this life,
         And whose belly You fill with Your hidden treasure.
         They are satisfied with children,
         And leave the rest of their possession for their babes.
 15 As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness;
         I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.

1. The Joy of True Temporal Treasures

A. A filled belly of hidden treasure given by God. Love, joy, peace, etc. given to us by the Holy Spirit who fills our belly with living water.
B. The Joy of One’s Children — what a blessing for us. Children are an heritage from the Lord. We are able to build a godly legacy through them even after we are gone.
C. An inheritance for those left behind — We have the opportunity to leave a deposit in those who remain.

2. The Joy of True Eternal Treasure

A. Security of an Eternal Future with Jesus — As for me, I WILL see…
B. Seeing God — I will see Your face….
C. Salvation’s finished work — …see your face in righteousness
D. Satisfaction — The yearning and longing of the heart is ultimately fulfilled in the very presence of God. This is what we were created for. To enjoy His presence forever and to serve and glorify Him.
E. Sinlessness — …in your likeness. There will be no vestige of the curse with its sorrow any longer.
