Does my Life Have Meaning?
May 2, 2021 • Eric Dubach
“When you read Psalm 23, you never get the impression that we’re at a standstill. The language is always active and forward moving. Verse three is no different. ‘He guides me in paths of righteousness…” There is a place God wants to lead me to. But it’s not to better behavior, it’s to a transformed heart. But if my heart is going to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus, this is going to be a lifetime of letting Him guide me there. So, buckle up and get ready to move.”
Why is My Soul Empty?

Rest is important. It’s even commanded in the Bible. So, how do we find it and how do we take it? Psalm 23: 2 tells us our Good Shepherd is able to lead us to a restful place. He invites us to follow him out of drought and weariness and in to spaces of rest. It’s a constant invitation because our need for rest seems to always lurk under the surface. So, where do you find yourself weary? I’m not asking if you need to sleep since you’ve been up for forty-eight hours. I’m asking if your soul needs refreshment? The primary way God invites us in to rest is through is Son, Jesus. Outside of him, there is no true rest because there, we have no peace with God. Being able to “exhale” and rest requires a relationship with Jesus, our Good Shepherd.
What is a Satisfied Life?

It would take but a few minutes for each of us to create a list of things we feel is lacking in our lives. I’m not referring to the newest gaming system or a nicer car. I’m talking about things our soul most longs for; rest, protection, leadership. Fulfillment, satisfaction, etc… The problem is there are plenty of fake shepherds, wolves in shepherds clothing actually, trying to promise all of that to us. And when we follow these voices, we recognize what was given to us is actually sin and we end up feeling less fulfilled and more empty. But when we know and follow the voice of our Good Shepherd, Jesus, we find our lives lack nothing.
