When we look at ourselves and the world around us. It's very easy to realize that everyone has a desire to be fulfilled. Whether that's through social status, financial wealth, physical health or having close friends we all have a desire to be filled and satisfied. But the question is on the table, do those things truly save you?
With this being said we have a Savior who says "Come to me all of you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest."(Matthew 11:28)
And also "whoever believes in me will not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16) Jesus presents Himself as the remedy for our lack of fulfillment and our emptiness in this life. He says that nothing will fulfill or satisfy forever, but only Him. We invite you to receive this fulfillment, joy and salvation that only Christ offers and our desire is to help you receive this truth wherever your at.
