Finite Beings—Infinite Desires

By   •   September 18   •   Topics:


One of the basic desires of the soul is to live on and on. Self-preservation is the first law of nature. People may grow tired of aches and pains and the decrepitude of old age, but they do not grow tired of life itself. God has arranged to satisfy this yearning of the soul to live forever, and the desire to be free from pain and sickness and trouble. People are little creatures with big capacities, finite beings with infinite desires, deserving nothing but demanding all. God made people with this huge capacity and desire in order that He might come in and completely satisfy that desire. God made the human heart so big that only He can fill it. He made it demand so much that only He can supply that demand . . . Jesus Christ is the only one who holds the keys of death. In His death and resurrection He took the sting out of death, and now God offers eternal life to every person who puts his trust and faith in His Son Jesus Christ.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, when I come to the end of this earthly life, You will be there to guide me to my heavenly home. Thank You, my loving Father.

    My mother-in-law died recently and as we sat with her during this time a couple of times she called out to her mama and then a couple of times she said “Pull me Jesus”. We asked her did she see Jesus she shook her head yes. She loved her Lord. I hope heaven is everything she expected.


    I believe that if the rapture is not quickly take place death will come but I pray O God do not let me lose eternity and in the end of my journey on earth father take me to my heavenly home
