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.

    Yes, someday we’ll be freed by Christ’s return, & it might be sooner than we think.

  4. Mark C says:

    Amen brother.

    One translation of Ecc 3v11 says ‘He has put eternity in their hearts’. It may explain the idea of billions and billions of years we wish to speculate about. Yes. We long for something, anything permanent. Isn’t that what the writer of Hebrews is getting at?

    But this world keeps letting us down. Shifting sand. Entropy.

    Jesus of Nazareth invites us to an eternal city.

  7. Joyce Paul says:

    PRAISE THE LORD!!! AMEN>
