Have you ever wondered why people seek to know Jesus? What is it that drives them to find Him? One thing that most of us notice even during puberty is that there is an empty spot or a hole in your heart that you cannot fill. Nothing that you try can fill it. No amount of money or sex or drugs or anything else can fill that space because it is made for only one person…Jesus.
Some people find Him early in their life and some don’t discover the object of their desire for many years. Most of us live a good portion of our lives trying to find that certain “thing” that fulfills us and when we do find Him we realize it wasn’t a “thing” after all. It is the person of Jesus Christ that fills every corner of that place that has always felt empty.
God has loved us deeply since before the Garden was created or even the Earth was formed, yet people still don’t want to believe it. He planned all of this because He could see beyond time itself and He knew that we would become our own worst selves without a Savior. HE provided the hope of a Savior even to Adam and Eve when He told them that the seed of the woman would redeem their sin one day.
Humanity has plowed through the ages on our own pride in what we have accomplished, especially during this past century. We have pushed God away and then we wonder what is happening to our world when things begin to go wrong. You have pushed God and His influence away from your children’s education and from the public square as much as possible. Why wouldn’t things be going wrong? We have taken the Creator out of His creation. What did you expect to happen? That is like beginning a trip and setting the cruise control and taking your hands from the steering wheel. Granted, you can do that today but I still don’t trust it.
God sustains us and His creation every hour of every day and when we remove this belief from the minds of people it causes big problems. They see themselves as animals who live by instinct and they look at others as being in their way to have things that they want. Seeking your Savior in Jesus is the only way to bring peace into your life that has been missing so I pray that anyone who reads this will seek Him as soon as possible. We are not promised tomorrow so make your decision for Him today!
