Scriptures: John 6:26-42, Isaiah 55:1-3, Matthew 4:4, 6:11
This world is filled with people who are desperately trying to find purpose and meaning, fulfillment and significance in their life. The truth is when it comes to living and life, most people are not satisfied customers. It was the great philosopher, Henry David Thoreau, who once said, "The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation." In this message, Dr. Merritt explores how to find real direction for life through focusing on values for living that are spiritual, eternal and Christ-centered.
"The world wants to satisfy your body. God wants to satisfy your heart. The world wants you to focus on that which is going to die--your body. God wants you to focus on that which is going to live forever--your soul." --Dr. Merritt
