Have you ever known someone who had it made? Financial independence, rewarding career, and fulfilling relationships? That was me several years ago. I had everything society said was important and necessary for contentment, yet I felt there was something significant missing in my life. For most of my life success had failed to satisfy that missing element in my life.
That’s when I discovered the most important thing that has ever happened to me. At the invitation of a friend, I began attending a church. A short time later, the pastor shared with me how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He told me it isn’t about being religious, or about performance, but about trusting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
Since that day, Jesus has continually fulfilled that missing element in my life. I have discovered whether I have much or little wasn’t the most important thing in my life, but to experience contentment at all times regardless of circumstance. That is what Jesus has done for me! In Jesus, I not only have a plan for my life, but a never ending purpose. The greatest benefit is the assurance I have of knowing that when I die I’m going to heaven.
