Read: Jeremiah 31:13
By nature, human beings want to hug and hold onto life, save it and keep it. Everyone loves to guard what he or she has and fear the thought of losing it all. But Jesus taught that there is only one way to know life’s meaning. He said, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt. 16:25). How contrasting is Jesus’ teaching!
We gain happiness by letting go of this life and holding onto Jesus alone. When our focus is on Jesus alone, He will meet all our needs and give us the joy inexpressible. Are you holding back some area of your life from the Lord? Do you need to let go of certain things or areas in your life so that you can receive the joy God intended for you?
