Only Jesus!

Only Jesus! There are so many things and so many people that we think will make us happy. We try to fill up this desire inside of us for peace and happiness with temporary things. Only Jesus! You may say, "I have a great job. I get to do what I love. I make a lot of money. I am happy." What happens when you lose the ability to perform that job? When your company shuts down? When you are fired? Only Jesus! Perhaps, it's your family and friends. That's where you find happiness. The problem is people will let you down. They may be too concerned with themselves. They may make a major mistake. They may not even intend to. Only Jesus! Is it money or your stuff? It too could all be gone. It doesn't take much. The markets crash. You are cheated. Someone steals from you. It could be a storm. Only Jesus! Disappointment occurs when something fails to live up to our expectations of it. We often get what we want in life. Yet, it leaves us wanting more. Only Jesus!

John 6:27 Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. Only Jesus! From Augustine: "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you." Only Jesus! Blaise Pascal writes, "What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself." Only Jesus! John 6:35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. Only Jesus!

From Matt Redmond: "Who can command the highest praise? Who has the name above all names? You stand alone, I stand amazed Jesus, only Jesus"
