The Truth Is God
Yet,. where is the God of righteousness now? And where can the glory of heaven be found? . Is this world filled with righteousness? Does this world glorify God to the greatest extent? Then what is still missing?. And what do we lack? And how shall we fill and satisfy that? . Early on in human life people gain knowledge of pleasure and strife. They suffer pain;. they enjoy delight, and they prefer, of course, the pleasures of life. They see the results. of honor and shame, and they prefer the glory, honor, pleasure, and fame. Even when there’s. neither good nor bad, they still prefer the pleasure instead. And even more. than tranquil rest, they still prefer what’s glorious. They’re not content. to simply exist. And to merely rest is not sufficient for them. 19 Even more than. serenity itself they want glory, honor, pleasure, and wealth. Yet what is wrong. with tranquility? Why forsake peace and serenity? . From nothing we gain some glory, honor, or some fame, or pleasure. But the gaining of it only rewards a desire for more, until nothing anymore. ever satisfies, and we struggle in vain to even survive. We are tempted. by the very premise that the ultimate state of heavenly bliss has not been achieved or accomplished yet. And the subtle fact. that there is something we still lack inspires us to want more than what we have. So we try to reach. the highest extreme in order to satisfy our deepest need. And it seems we will try anything to fulfill our greatest dream...
19. See Isaiah 30:15, hebrews 4:11.
