C.S. Lewis once wrote, “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
We know that we were made for another world. Scripture teaches it. Our own experience testifies to it. The Psalmist wrote, “As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?” (Ps. 42:1-2).
This world is not all that there is to reality. All of us will be somewhere forever (Matt. 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Heb. 9:27).
Do you find yourself with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy? Rest assured that such is because you were created by a loving God who longs to welcome you into his presence (Luke 15:20). You were made for another world.
