Empty - that's what I notice about people who don't have Jesus in their life. They are empty. That may seem like a self-serving thing to say as a believer, but I don't mean it to be. The people I know who have a strong, living and active faith in Christ seem full, content, alive.
My heart breaks for those who are empty. They look to the world to fill them up. Sometimes they try to fill themselves with good things:. Exercise, family, philanthropy. Sometimes they try to fill themselves up with bad things: Alcohol, drugs, sexuality. All looking to be filled.
Jesus said, "I am the bread of life, he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst."* With Jesus, you will be full. Never empty. Never hungry. Never thirsty.
Without Jesus you will always be empty. Some people may not believe that. Some people may say I am just "full of it." And what they don't know is that they are right...I am full. Full of Jesus. And I've never be empty again.
