Reality ~ Life outside of a relationship with Jesus Christ is hollow. Having “fun” never lasts, it is short-term, and the next time the same concept is a little less fun. Eventually there must be a new way of having fun! Lasting satisfaction is always elusive.
Historical Perspective ~ King Solomon, widely regarded as the richest and wisest man of his time tried all the typical ways of having fun. He had the best food, women, parties, riches, and wealth beyond compare. In the Book of Ecclesiastes he summarizes his experiences and his ongoing restlessness. Solomon concludes near the end of the book that the only real lasting enjoyment and ongoing satisfaction in life is being in relationship with God.
The Solution ~ The person who has a real relationship with Jesus Christ has peace and joy beyond human understanding. They have the abundant life! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10b).
“Great peace have those who love Your law, and nothing causes them to stumble” (Psalm 119:165).
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You” (Isaiah 26:3).
