People try to fill the emptiness they feel inside with so many different things without succeeding. One way to avoid feeling emptiness is to stay extremely busy and connected with the world all the time. Hence they don’t have time to ponder why they are so restless and unhappy.
But if you don’t take time to sit still, you can’t really hear God. And like Augustinus has said it so well “God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you.”
God did not only create us for himself but provided a very much needed connector between humans and himself. So people could be free and connected to the source of Real Life and find peace in Him.
There is one God and one mediator between God and humanity, the human Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a payment to set all people free. (1 Tim. 2: 5-6,CEB)
Jesus is indeed the ultimate connector. He does not only mediate between God and humans. But he provides also healing and restoration. Jesus rebuilds relationships. First between God and humans. And then between brothers and sisters, parents and children, us and them.
Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. (Hebr. 4: 14-16, MSG)
Let’s not let this possibility slip through our fingers.
Let’s take the mercy and accept the help.
Because we do need God.
And we need Jesus to (re)connect us with God.
As well as we need the Holy Spirit to revive our souls.
So we could be made happy and whole.
And live in love of God forever more.
Thank you for Jesus!
Without Him we’d be forever lost.
But with Him we are forever saved.
Redeem us, restore us, revive us!
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Have you experienced healing/restoration through Jesus? Have you been (re)connected with God?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you take the mercy and accept the help!
