Sad, Empty Town

We want something to fill us, but in the end, we still feel empty unless we put something of substance, of worth, of long-lasting value into our lives, into our beings.  We need the One who is life to fill us.  Everything else fails.  When we are walking the roads of this life, do we take time to consider what kind of road we are walking on, what destination is awaiting for us at the end of it?  There is only One who is life.  Every other life has an end, a finality, but there is a life in which every other life was patterned after, but every other life is a shadow, a picture, a hollow shell of what is real.  Do we want to chase after only phantom imaginations, struggling to build up an abiding place for our vacant pursuits?   Or, do we want something really worth while, worth our valuable lives to run after?

We have such a limited time really.  Wouldn't the life that is REALLY life be something worthwhile to fill us?  Jesus, the Son of God, who was God who became man, said, "I am the way, and the reality and the life," John 14:6a.  How can a man say that He is THE life?  He was God, and this God-man has been processed through His human living, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension to become the Life-Giving Spirit (I Cor. 15:45b) to become your life.  That is, He wants to indwell you as God indwelt Jesus, to become not merely your Savior (which He is) but to become your life! John 10:10b says, "I have come that they may have life and may have it abundantly."   Do you feel empty, that your life is a pursuing after vanity?  Then call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him to be your Savior AND your life!  (Acts 2:21)!
