How do you feel about life right now? Are you 100% content or do you often feel as though something is missing? How would you complete the following statement: If only I _____ then my life would be more satisfactory?
Doesn’t it seem as though we spend an excessive amount of time seeking more out of life? Our life seems to be a non-stop quest for more happiness, more fulfilment, and even more things. At times our pursuit is successful. Or is it? Isn’t it true that even when successful in our quest, our enjoyment is a momentary enjoyment?
Well, have you ever considered what Jesus said about this non-stop quest? He said, “The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment” (Luke 12:23). In other words, there is more to life than food, fashion, fortune, fame, and fun.
We are people who have dire spiritual needs; spiritual needs only Jesus Christ can provide. Again, listen to what He Himself said:
“I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
Did you notice Christ promised that those who go to Him will never hunger or thirst? Then there are His words found in Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Jesus promised to satisfy our spiritual hunger and thirst. Do you believe He is able to satisfy your spiritual longings? If He can’t, who else can? Friend, if you’re tired of the endless pursuit for satisfaction, then why not accept the Lord Jesus’ invitation to find rest in Him?
