The Goal of life is Life! More life! Real Life!
No one told us, but from the very beginning we somehow “knew” that there’s more to life than this.
And for some odd reason, we have been endlessly vehemently protesting against ‘no life’. We just couldn’t settle with ‘no life’.
We needed to have life, and have it more abundantly.
We refuse to be bored out of our minds. Boredom is something we violently fight against with everything we’ve got. We can be everything except bored.
We need to do something. Be somewhere.
Live. Enjoy. Explore. Achieve. Succeed.
And the last thing we want to be is boring. We want to be interesting. Be the person who brings Life! The person who brings pleasure, enjoyment, inspiration motivation!
We endlessly practice everything from mama jokes to imitations (voice, moves, drama) to somehow bring laughter, joy, amusement and maybe Life to this world.
But, how did we come to covet and crave so much of this thing called Life?
Who told us this is what we wanted and desperately needed?
Listen to your soul.
What your soul craves isn’t just another date, drink or drama.
And your soul craving definitely won’t be satisfied through any amount of time spent on facebook, youtube or tumblr. Nor will it be ever satisfied with your time spent in front of your TV.
It will only fully quench its thirst when it’s meets LIFE!
You see, contrary to what many believe, Life isn’t a concept or a game.
Rather it’s a Person!
Not only is Jesus “The Life” (John 14:6), “in Him is The Life” (John 1:4) you have been and will always be craving for.
But the tragedy in our day, as it was in the days of Jesus is that we “refuse to go to Him for Life” (John 5:40).
So, we do just about everything to quench our thirst for Life except Go to Life Himself.
We’ll buy tickets and make time for just about every gig in town, but won’t take the time to Meet Life!
This simple truth will set you free.
What you want is Life! More Life! Real Life! Continual and Everlasting Life!
And the only place you can find it is in Jesus!
