For businessmen, it is that search for money. For the musician it’s the limelight of the concert. For the artist, it’s the masterpiece. For the movie star, it’s the next big production. For the scientist, it’s the next breakthrough. For the intellectual, the next argument won. For the student, it’s the next good grade. For the journalist, it’s the next big story.
How often do we grasp for more out of this life? How often do we strive towards finish lines that keep moving backwards?
Pete Briscoe hits on this in his video. As a pastor, he would continue to strive for a great sermon but be confronted by people of the church with the question, “Oh, that was great Pete. How are you going to top that next week?”
But which of these desires is satiable? Which of these goals can make us content? What is to be gained but a desire for more of the same?
Blake Mankin answered that question well:
“What Jesus is to me is that ultimate thirst quencher”
This sounds awesome! But, if I were more skeptical towards Christ, how would you explain to me what it is about Christ that brings satisfaction.
