Living for Your Greatest Desire: Jesus



“The desire of your souls for His name and fame will not be disappointed. There’s no maybe about it.”

Our Savior desires that our hearts would desire Him. However, desire can be a dangerous alley in worship. Our desires are not what we worship; they are our worship. Christian life entails costly love. Only in our sacrifice of the world can we discover the complete satisfaction of a life lived for Christ.
