Always Enough! John 14:8

Good morning everyone,
Are you one of those that is always yearning for more?  Are you a person that has never really been satisfied with the results of your life?  In John 14:8, even Phillip has a hard time associating Jesus as being Lord and Savior!  Phillip was one on the few that intimately spent time with Jesus, yet he still had doubts about who Jesus claimed to be!  He had to be reminded by Jesus himself.  At times, if we are brutally honest, we too probably doubt!  From the outside, after reading John 14:8, you probably wonder how Phillip could be questioning Jesus!  But we do the same thing and really we have no reason to.  If you yearn for anything, make sure that it is eternal!  The things most of us yearn for are what our neighbor has and those yearnings will end in disappointment 100% of the time!  Yearn to know Jesus intimately and He will never disappoint you!  Isn't it funny that we are so easily swayed into believing the lies of satan?  We think the next big job, the bigger home, the sparkly new car, and the list goes on and on will be the solution to our problems.  In order to get the satisfaction that Jesus can provide, you need to spend time with Him.  There are no shortcuts and there is no looking over someones shoulder in order to instantly get to the top!  Jesus will take you right where you are at and He wants you just like you are!  He made you so don't try and change your appearance to get ready for Him.  If you do delay, think of all the things that you miss that He has in store for you.  Don't let satan convince you into thinking that you are a boring and nerdy person by choosing to serve your Creator!  I promise you that your life will suddenly have a 'new meaning' when you choose Christ!  Choosing Christ will provide answers that you can find nowhere else!  Joshua 24:15 tells us to choose this day whom you will serve.  But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  
Your brother in Christ,
