Fuller yet more empty: how can that be?


When someone goes to buy a car, they need to consider several important factors that affect the purchase, such as knowing what the vehicle’s fuel consumption is and whether it will be hybrid, electric or flex-fuel, for example.

This is also necessary to understand the cost of maintaining the car.

Similarly, when someone buys a mobile phone, they also need to consider the system, services offered and the company that sells it.

In other words, we all need to know how things work and what they are “fuelled” with. It’s no different with human beings: they also need a fuel. Otherwise, they’ll walk around empty, which is one of the greatest evils of humanity today.

We see people who have beauty, money, fame, a house, a car and a family but they are empty inside. These are people who, even with the little they had to live on until some time ago, were relatively happier than they are today.

So, what many people need to overcome emptiness is to start valuing what they have, instead of developing an anxiety about constantly having more. It’s evident that the happiest people are those who are the most grateful.

The Bible teaches us:

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV)

What definitively resolves the emptiness of the human being, is intimacy with God. If you’d like to receive this inner peace, start investing in your relationship with Him.

If you seek God’s Spirit, He will fill you and everything else in your life will have colour, meaning, flavour and joy (Matthew 6:33).

To learn more about this subject, and discover how you can receive inner joy and live a more meaningful and fulfilling life, you are invited to attend the weekly, ‘Life in Colour’ meetings.

At these empowering services, you will learn how to start seeing life’s challenges with a positive light and how to use the power of faith to overcome them. They take place at the Rainbow Theatre, on Sundays at 4pm.

This week, there will be a special meeting taking place, ‘My family in God’s hands’ an opportunity for you to intervene on behalf of your loved ones. Write down their names and bring them with you to this meeting for prayers.
