The ultimate of ‘defining moments’…

There is one ‘defining moment’ that is common to all of mankind, and that is what they will do when they come face to face with Jesus Christ. It is generally understood and accepted that there is a God and that there is an innate (born with) desire to know God. Roy Davis, author of Satisfying Our Innate Desire to Know God, writes, “A compelling urge from the deepest level of our being makes us yearn to have our awareness restored to its original, pure state and we cannot be completely satisfied until this is accomplished.”

It was God who intended that it be this way. Solomon, the wisest man to have ever lived said, “He (God) has put eternity in their hearts”. God has not only put such a desire in every person’s heart, but also placed them in pre-appointed times and places in order that they would seek God and in their seeking find Him .

God, on several occasions was heard to have said, regarding Jesus Christ, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him! It was Jesus who said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (to God) except through Me.” Simple logic tells us, that since every person seeks the truth about how to know God from birth, such a search will ultimately lead them to Jesus Christ.

Every person will come face to face with who Jesus is and what He said at some time in their life on this earth. It will be the ultimate of ‘defining moments’. The only question that remains when people meet Him is the timeless question Jesus asked Peter, “Who do you say that I am?” And just like every question that is ever asked, there is a right answer…and a wrong answer. The wrong answer leads to disaster and ultimately tremendous dissatisfaction. However, the right answer leads to ‘complete satisfaction’…guaranteed!

So true and I see it more now than ever before people are searching for the truth. I pray they would keep searching untill they reach Jesus, sometimes people can just get stuck and, "think this is as good as it's gonna get".

We are naturally rebellious and naturally reject God. I agree with what you say about our urge to satisfy our desire for God... but where does that come from if isn't natural? Do we, in all our sin suddenly want God? Or is there a remnant of good in us that still desires what is missing? I simply would like to learn what you have come to know on this matter.
