Dec. 12

For this is eternal life, that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3

Enjoy the season. Give and receive with joy. But keep in mind even must-have gifts eventually lose their appeal and sought-after experiences fall short of expectations. There’s only One who will always be more than we are longing for—His name is Jesus.

With Jesus, there are no diminishing returns; just divine, compelling answers to our deepest desires to know and be known. He satiates our soul while stirring our longing. In Him we find contentment laced with longing, satisfaction colored with the sweetest hunger. Strange? Yes. Otherworldly? Yes. That’s Jesus.

Ever-increasing joy and satisfaction lie in Jesus because in Him we taste the first course of eternity. Watch for Him with me.
