Longings Fulfilled (Revelation 21:1–6)

Jesus’ birth is also known as the “first Advent.” While we joyfully celebrated this day, we are still waiting for the second Advent—when Jesus return. The Bible promises us that Jesus is coming back and that He will make right all the things
that are broken in our world; that He will redeem the world itself into a new creation.

 

Quest for Spirituality: Acts 17:22–34

It is normal for us to search for meaning and purpose through some sort of spirituality. This desire is an echo of God’s voice as we long to know Him, to have faith in Him, and to be in union with Him.

Hunger for Relationships: Genesis 1:26–27

We search for relationships and connections with others. We want to be seen and valued; known and loved. We seek out relationships with others because God created us for relationships. This desire is an echo of God’s voice calling us into a relationship with Him.

Longing for Justice: Jeremiah 23:1–8

He has put the longing for justice within us. This longing is an echo of His voice; His design. We desire justice because God is just, and He is the only One who can make things right.
