Turn to Love

Turn away from all the things that can never bring lasting satisfaction.

Matthew 11:20

Then he (Jesus) began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done, since they had not repented.

To repent is to change the direction in which you are seeking happiness or fulfillment.

Jesus went about curing people not to get rave reviews of his miracles and become a celebrity but so people could see that God wants everyone to be “whole.”

God wants us all to know that we belong…we are included.

Jesus cured the sick (who would have been cast-out of their communities as “unclean”) and were therefore restored.

Most people are looking for wholeness, meaning and fulfillment in the wrong places. They are trying to find something that is missing…trying to satisfy an inner yearning for wholeness through power, prestige and possessions…or physical pleasure.

But the space that needs filling…can only be filled by God who is Love.

Only God can satisfy that deep, spiritual yearning for wholeness. A deeper connection with God…the Loving Source of all life…is the only answer.

A stronger relationship with Jesus is a great way to strengthen your bond with God. He showed us how to live and how to die. He showed us how to love.

All it takes is a decision that can be made with each new moment…to turn away from the things that cannot provide our wholeness and to turn toward the only One who can.

Why not now?
