Christ, Our Ultimate Satisfaction (John 14:6-14)


Jesus wants more than anything for Philip to recognize him, to believe completely in him. We can simply highlight God’s love towards His disciples, particularly towards Philip this way: “Put your trust in me, follow my example and ask me for what you need. I will give you whatever you ask.”


Why? Jesus is the answer to all we need because He is the way, the truth, and the life. Our Lord Jesus Christ has what we are looking for. That’s what Jesus was telling Philip.


Philip showed in his question to Jesus the story of humanity’s deepest longing and the one in and by whom that longing is satisfied only in God. Our longing is manifested by our restlessness, by our sense of emptiness, by our search for meaning and significance.


As St. Augustine put it: “Lord, you have made us for Yourself and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” In this gospel, Jesus tells us: “If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.”True satisfaction is not found in our accomplishments, acquisitions, or what we do for ourselves. Satisfaction is not about filling a void. It is about stepping into a new life, God’s life, the divine world of opportunities.
