In conclusion, I submit to you from personal experience that the more I have yielded myself to God, following this maxim, the more fulfilled my life has become. Even though hardships come my way, I am not alone. Sometimes He delivers me from these obstacles and other times He holds my hand I was walk through them. But given the frailty of life, and recognizing that for all eternity I will be in His presence, those of us who strive to make it our ambition to be pleasing to Him have not only discovered lasting contentment, meaning, and purpose, but we have also experienced an overflow that touches lives in the most extraordinary way.
So, if you are looking for lasting contentment, joy, peace, and satisfaction, I invite you to seriously consider the person and work of Jesus Christ. Because of Jesus Christ’ sacrifice on your behalf, your past, present, and future sins have been forgiven. Thus, when you place your faith in Him for salvation, eternal fellowship, undeserved favor, total forgiveness, and an unmistakable and incomparable joy and peace becomes yours. And all of this is possible when you place your faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, believing that He is God, who died on the cross for your sins and rose bodily from the dead.
