C.S. Lewis said: ‘We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered to us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.’
The Bible tells of the infinite joy God offers in his Son Jesus. Sadly, we look elsewhere for joy.
As we consider alcoholism I hope we see that the fundamental problem is our heart. We seek the desires of our sinful hearts and so miss what God offers.
Let’s pray for one another to set our hearts fully on Jesus, the one who gives new life and infinite joy.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
