Fill me

You are
Everything I need, everything I wanted

There is a need in each of us: a need to be fulfilled. God has set eternity in our hearts. But since we cannot fathom what He has done, we look elsewhere - everywhere - to fill ourselves. Indeed, all our sin is an attempt at the fulfillment of some desire: lust, fame, money, whatever.

Or apples. That's where it started. And we've followed the wide, easy road ever since.

But an apple never filled me. Maybe for a few minutes - but certainly not for eternity.

"Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.'" - John 6:35

Give us this day our daily bread...
