There has to be more!
I wonder how often this idea has been in your mind, and how often you have said, “There has to be more!” Even the best things in life: our joys, relationships, and possessions can leave us wondering if there is more to life.
Have you heard of King Solomon, who tried everything that life had to offer? He had plenty of power and money, so he was able to indulge himself in every pleasure and luxury. He had the best food and wine. He married seven hundred wives and had three hundred mistresses. He had his own personal staff of the country’s best singers. What better example of seeking after “wine, women, and song” could there be! Solomon said that whatever his eyes desired, he kept nothing from them, and he withheld his heart from no pleasure.
Here is a man who lived a life of unhindered license. He just let himself go, and the result of it all was that he declared, “Indeed all was vanity and grasping for the wind. There was no profit under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 2:11). He had everything he ever wanted, but none of it satisfied him. Do you wonder why? Well, for one reason, he found that just like everybody else, he couldn’t escape death. He couldn’t go on indefinitely enjoying the things he possessed. Death stared him in the face. In spite of all his indulgence, there was a sense of frustration. Does this sound familiar to you?
How few really happy people there are today! Why is it so? I will tell you. Man is made primarily for God and for eternity, not just for a few years down here. That which belongs to eternity cannot find satisfaction in things which are merely temporary. Do you think you would be happy if you could only have a “little bit more”? Look at the people who already have it. What do they want? “A little bit more”! Gain the wisdom of Solomon: observe the failure of even the wealthiest man to get satisfaction from anything in this world.
The Bible tells us that our life is not made up of the things we have, or even our relationships. The Lord Jesus Christ says, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). It’s obvious that a horse cannot live in the sea: land is his natural element. A bird’s element is the air, and the fish must have water. Even so, man is made for God. Heaven and eternity are your natural elements, and every attempt you make to satisfy yourself apart from them is going to come up short.
If we are to be satisfied, it must be done spiritually. Whether you have realized it or not, the longing in your heart which you cannot satisfy with earthly things is a yearning for God. There is no life truly worth living apart from Him, simply because life without Him is missing its critical component.
“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). The Lord Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth to offer us true life. He tasted death on the Cross to rescue us from sin and failure, and to obtain pardon for us from our guilty life of sin against Him.
Jesus Christ is alive, and will live in you by the Holy Spirit if you confess your sins to Him and trust Him as your Saviour. You will no longer have an emptiness, a desire, a longing, but you will have life—life to the full. That is the life which God offers to you, and He offers it to you only in the Lord Jesus Christ. To neglect that salvation is to choose an eternity of torment apart from God in the blackness of darkness forever, with no hope of ever meeting the longing of your soul.
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom. 10:9). “He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life” (1 John 5:12).
