Cravings, we all get them. The world offers us strong cravings for physical pleasures, possessions, pride, our achievements. But like all cravings, they are never satisfied. We are left empty in the end wanting more. They never deliver. These cravings are self focused, they are self indulgent. When we give into them, we get stuck. We become shallow, hollowed out, empty people, people who are always craving more, and the more we crave the emptier and more hollow our lives become. But John wants to direct us to another way, a way made available to all by the presence of Christ Spirit within us. Because of his life in you. You can live a life that goes beyond yourself, a life that truly satisfies a life focused on walking with God, serving and loving others. Our response and our participation to the life of Christ in us is the beginning of living Christ focused. It enables us to move beyond the endless cycle of craving, emptiness, shame and despair. Instead, we experienced hope, love, kindness, joy, we experience a fruitful and meaningful life. The cravings of this world are strong. But there's something far more powerful. And that's available to you. And that is Christ in you. Your hope, and your glory. And Christ life in US isn't always expressed in something big and loud and flamboyant. In fact, most often, it leads to something common and every day and humble. Like being kind, sharing with those in need, listening to others, exercising your unique gifts, recognizing the gifts of others. These things as well as others are common markers of Christ's life in us. The exercise of these common acts of kindness, humility and love, are what leads to a truly satisfying life. May you find your satisfaction there with him? Today? That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the prayer that I have for my family for my wife, my daughters, my son. And that's a prayer that I have for you. May it be so
