What A Man Says
When we think about all of the people who are in the world today who do not believe in who Jesus is, it should truly break our hearts. There is only One who can bring salvation into the life of a person and that One is Jesus Christ. Yet so many people openly and actively reject Him. As a person who has experienced the result of pursuing the world and then saw what Jesus can do in a person’s life, it is hard to understand why anyone would reject him. Everyone is searching for love, for belonging, for wholeness, and yet they reject the one person who can actually do that in their lives.
Think of a person who is starving and in desperate need of food. Someone comes to them and tells them that they want to give a plate of food to them. But this is no ordinary plate of food. This plate of food is special because no matter how much they eat from it, it will always be full and as a result they will never go hungry again. However, upon being offered this miraculous gift, they say no and turn and walk away angry and start begging for food again. This sounds completely ridiculous and yet, we see billions of people in the world today who are suffering through the consequences of sin and when offered an opportunity to have literally everything that they have been longing for, they reject it outright.
I will tell you today that no matter what hurt is in your heart, what hole is in your heart, or whatever it is you are searching for, you will not find the answer in anything that this world has to offer. You can search the entire world and you will never find anything that will bring true and lasting love, joy, and contentment into your life. There is only One who can bring these things to you and only One who you can find them in. His name is Jesus Christ and it is time to stop rejecting the only One who can actually give you all that you have been longing for.
