Eternity in man’s heart
By K.T., Manila City on 26 February 2012 Share:

God’s purpose for creating man is for two things: to receive him as life, and to express Him. But Satan came in to inject sin into the very being of man. Thus man became corrupted together with all creation, and the Bible says they were subject to vanity. Ecclesiastes is a book that makes us realize that all things under the sun are vain –pursuing these things is like chasing the wind. Nothing under the sun fits man and satisfies him. This is because God has placed eternity in the hearts of man. This is why the Bible tells us to not seek the things which are seen, for they are temporary, but the things which are not seen. These things are eternal and will fill the eternity which is in man’s heart. The Bible also says that heaven and earth may fade away, but God’s word will stand forever. Only God and His word can fill our being and truly satisfy us. We have to realize that everything under the sun is just vanity of vanities. No matter what accomplishments we may have or how rich we may be, when we die they will mean nothing. Pleasure, money, and success cannot satisfy our heart. Everything on this earth is just temporary, vain, and worthless; that is why people are not satisfied. We cannot be satisfied because we were created by God to contain Him and not anything else. Only eternal things can satisfy us. That is why we have to seek God and set our eyes on the reality so that we will be satisfied. The chorus of Hymns #1080 says, "Christ without, all is vain! Christ within, all is gain! All things are vain, Christ only is gain."
