Why seek ye the living among the dead? Luke 24:5

Indeed, why are we looking for love in all the wrong places? A person is not going to find life, love, satisfaction and fulfillment in a bottle or in a pill. No joint will give life. No amount of pleasure will truly satisfy.

Even the good things in life that God gives to enhance our lives: our families, friends and loved ones, jobs, recreation and the like are only supplemental for our joy, satisfaction and fulfillment. We dare not look to them for abundant life. Jobs downsize, spouses divorce, kids grow up and get too busy for mom and dad, friends move away. Relationships are fickle. Riches grow wings and fly away. Pleasures get old. They will all fail us at some point. But Jesus never fails. His satisfaction is real and lasting. His joy is complete. His life is full and fulfilling.

If you want life and you want it more abundantly, then look to Jesus. Only He can truly satisfy! He is the only true Savior, faithful friend and the real joy giver.

Anything and everything else will fail in your search for true satisfaction in life.
