If you ask yourself ,what are the two greatest desires of life, what would they be ? some might answer, riches and beauty but what about life ? some might answer, life and riches but for how long ? how about health ?Some might say to be famous and wise but what about friends ? Looks like the two greatest desires are not enough, we need more, is it not ?
Looks like our desires are only temporary, is it not ? So i would like to suggest that the two greatest desires of life should be forever, is that okay ?
So what are they now ? Can you think of them ? How about eternal life and eternal happiness. You may say, are those possible ?
Perhaps you are saying those are speculations. But let us ask some more, who can give the greatest desires of life ? answer: God. But why will He give our desires ? He will give our desires if He is happy with us,is it not ? But how can He be happy with us ? If we do His will or obey His commands . What are His will and commands ?
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your strength and with all your soul. And love your neighbor as yourself.
Have we done those ? I do not know about you, i fail most of the time, perhaps you too ?
If so how can we have the two greatest desires of life ? Through grace and Jesus Christ.
Jesus said He is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Him.
And then when we are able to come to the Father through Jesus then the two greatest desires are ours.
