At the heart of our sin is our desire to be God rather than to be like God.
We want to be all-knowing, all-powerful, all glorified, and have all the attention.
We want our lives to revolve around us.
No wonder people long for purpose and peace like never before!
What we need to remember is that we are simply the creation.
When you go into a gallery, you don’t just stand there and praise a painting over and over again.
Ultimately you praise the painter.
Sure, humans have accomplished many things.
But has even one of them been able to create one powerful mountain or put a star in the sky?
We have a greater purpose than to pat ourselves on the back for who we are and what we’ve “accomplished.”
You see this clearly with the greats, and most famous.
Many feel hollow even after the most worldly success because there is a God shaped whole that only he can fill in their hearts.
“And do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
so that you may prove what the will of God is,
that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
