We’re always turning our heart toward something. The latest poll numbers. The latest headline. The latest scandal. The latest episode. The latest gossip. Someone has gotten divorced. Someone has been exposed as a fraud. Someone has promised utopia. Someone has prophesied catastrophe. Oh, and have you heard of the newest phone/app/car/site? But in this mad rush our hearts gain little but disillusion and dizziness.
Let us turn our hearts toward Calvary. The cross of substitution does not advertise on a website, but it fulfills all its promises. The suffering Savior does not captivate our worldly curiosities, but he satisfies all emptiness and longing. The goodness of the gospel is not a catchy soundbite, but an eternal meal, enriching our soul while always leaving us with a capacity for more.
Let us turn our hearts toward Calvary.
