What Are You Seeking?
by Bobby Bruno 3/08/2011 / Christian Apologetics
You've been seeking fulfillment all of your life. Nothing on this Earth is satisfying to you anymore. You've searched and searched for years, bouncing between one thing after another: a material object (car, house, clothes, job, etc...); pornography; a relationship with people you know you shouldn't get involved with (a married man or woman, for instance). The list is endless. Never in this world will you fully satisfy that empty place in your soul that is longing to be filled. Never!
There is only one way to fulfill the greatest need that your heart has been aching for, and, believe it or not, it is the easiest thing you will ever be able to obtain in the entire universe. You don't have to work for it! You can't earn it! You won't have to struggle in any way to get it! You don't have to beg for it! You can't steal it! Why is this thing so easy to get into your life? Because all you have to do is simply ask for it. That's all! When you do, you will receive it instantaneously -- even before you finish the asking! Nowhere else you will ever find a treasure that is so easy to obtain in this world.
Do you know that the Person you need to ask is standing right next to you, eagerly awaiting for you to say the words? Do you know that He has been standing right beside you, since the day you were born, and that He even knew what your birth date was going to be, because He is the One who had it all planned? Who is this One who can ease (not eliminate) your worldly struggles, bring you great peace, and show you how to love everyone you know, including your enemies? Who is this One who will fill you with the faith and courage to ask for what He so wants to give you at this very moment?
Once you receive what this One wants to freely give you, your life will surely be filled with hope for the best future you could ever have. He will give to you a love of which there is none greater anywhere in the universe, and then teach you how to love the whole world regardless of the chaos in it.
His Name is Jesus Christ, Immanuel (God with us), and Wonderful Counselor. In fact, there are two hundred and fifty-six names given to Jesus in the Bible. He is everything to everyone. He is God in the flesh who came to this Earth from His lofty position in Heaven to save everyone who would call on His name and seek His forgiveness, and accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
That's why obtaining God's gift of Salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, is so easy! All you have to do is ask Him to come into your life and save you from your sins, and He will forgive of them all: past, present, and future.
We need Jesus Christ in our lives, because the world, or other people, or things, cannot satisfy our need for true love and honest relationships. This can only come through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Only with Him will you find true lasting peace and forgiveness for your every sin. Only through Him will you find your needs met in a way you never once dreamed possible.
Accept Him. Love Him. Embrace Him. Find in Him all that your heart has been looking for. Seek no longer for the One you need to fill your heart in all its glory. He is right there beside you. Just call on His name and He will respond immediately. You'll be so glad you did forever.
Bobby Bruno was saved 14 years ago in a way that left him no doubt that Jesus wanted him to reach others with His great and abounding love. He started writing at the age of 12 and hasn't stopped since. He achieved Associates Degree in Biblical Studies from Ohio Christian University in early 2014.
