Everyone desire security and significance. Regardless of professions, credentials, or possessions, the vast majority of us are swimming in a sea of insecurity and trying our best to hide it. The messages all around us are that worldly things can fulfill us. It’s on TV, in magazines, on the internet; everywhere we turn we’re being bombarded by empty promises for a more fulfilling life. . . a better husband, a better body, a better career, a more beautifully decorated house . . . to be liked, to be wanted, to feel we have something unique to offer. They sneak into our thought process and make us think, if only I had . . . I’d be so secure and fulfilled.
Until our hearts find complete security and significance in God’s unconditional love, we will never be satisfied. As children of God we are designed to find our identity, our significance, and our confidence in Him. The only way we’ll be able to do this is if we move beyond knowing about God to knowing and relying on Him.
When Christ told His disciples, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32), He was referring not only to an intellectual assent to the truth, but also to the application of truth in the most basic issues of life: our goals, our motives, and our sense of self-worth. Unfortunately, many give only lip service to the powerful truths of the Scriptures. True freedom is when we learn to apply foundational truths that can motivate us to live for Christ instead of the approval of others.
