- Let nothing else satisfy
Illus. It’s just not the same.
Psalm 62:5, My soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him.
Psalm 63:1, O God, You are my God; I shall seek you earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for you, in dry and weary land
where there is no water.
1 Corinthians 13:7, Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Isaiah 53:5, He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him,
and by His wounds, we are healed.
Hebrews 10:11-12, Under the old covenant, the priest stands and ministers before the altar day after day, offering the same sacrifices
again and again, which can never take away sins. But our High Priest offered Himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then
He sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. (NLT)
- Embrace Him as Lord
John 10:27, My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
Illus. He’s back!
Romans 6:4-5, As Christ was raised from the dead to the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become
united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection.
John 11:25-26, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, shall live. And whoever lives
and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?
John 3:16-17, For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have
eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
John 14:6, Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we
do not know where they have laid Him.” So Peter and the other disciple went forth, and they were going to the tomb. The two were running together;
and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter and came to the tomb first; and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there;
but he did not go in. And so Simon Peter also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the face-cloth
which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself. So the other disciple who had first come to the
tomb then also entered, and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. So the disciples
went away again to their own homes. But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; and
she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. And they said to her, “Woman, why
are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” When she had said this, she
turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”
Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I
have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’” Mary
Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and that He had said these things to her.
