Have you ever thought about all of the things that you put your hope in other than Christ? You know…all of those things or relationships that we wholeheartedly believe will satisfy our deepest longings. They are the things that you think, “If I can get _______, then things will be right.” Could be a promotion or a mended family relationship. Could be that new phone.
Well, in case you’ve not lived long enough to realize it quite yet (or if you’re like me and just too stubborn sometimes) all of those other things will fail. They will not live up to the hype. None of them have even the slightest chance at satisfying, completing, or fulfilling you or me.
