Infinite Yearning

bible.com/72/ecc.3.11.hcsb

Where does natural human curiosity come from? It seems that everyone has this yearning for the infinite, a wonder that reaches beyond their five senses into the what if? It is a lack of contentment with all that we are because we feel a great pit within us waiting to be filled with something. We try to fill it with many things, money, power, relationships, but nothing fits. Nothing is big enough.

Ancient cultures tried to fill it with inventions of gods and goddesses, trying to explain a much bigger picture of the world around them, but those were all corruptions. Few remembered the beginning. There were some that did, but they seemed reluctant to share with Gentiles. It wasn’t until someone they raised and taught, a perfect child so they thought, who would declare that His message was for all. So they fought, arrested, and killed Him. But He was too good to die, and didn’t stay that way. He rose from the dead and declared to all when he said, God has sent His Son into the world to die so that they might live.

That great yearning for eternity can only and should only be filled by the grace, mercy and love that come through Jesus Christ. Come and be filled.
