There is an author named Charles Brower. In his book, Me and Other Advertising Geniuses, he talks about a friend he knows through business. He describes his friend in words like this:
“My friend Bill is one of those guys who’s still searching for success, even though he’s already found it. He’s one of those guys who’s still scoring touchdowns, even though the game’s over and won. My friend Bill has done everything they’ve told him to do, but he’s still thirsty and unhappy. He’s come to the end of the rainbow, but there’s no pot of gold there. He’s found the buried treasure, but it’s empty.”
The point is, in every human heart there’s a restlessness no success can satisfy. There is a void no material object can fill. There is a thirst no water can quench.
This brings us to the “good news.” Jesus is present to each of us. He is the Prince of Peace, come to calm the restlessness in our hearts. He is the water from heaven, come to satisfy our thirst. He is the Son of God, our Savior, come to win for us the gift of eternal life.
Sincerely in Christ,
