What do you need the most?

Your answer will probably vary depending on your present sense of humor. Or lack of it.

“A good night’s sleep.”

“Stronger coffee.”

“A large bag of cash.”

But, if we were pressed to really give the question serious thought, our answers may run a little deeper. We might recognize that we have a strong need to be loved. Or maybe a need to be respected, or feel  valued and appreciated.

Depending on what is happening in your life at the present moment, your greatest need may be a calm sense of peace. A resolution to a crisis. Relief.

Our answers will vary. Not just from the answer others give, but even our own answers. Our perception of what we believe to be our greatest need will be influenced by the circumstances or mood we find ourselves in.

God, however, is perfectly objective. And since He is greater than any circumstance, His perspective will not be swayed by the moment. What do you think He would say your greatest need is?

What we see in the Bible is that God interacts with the human race because He sees that our greatest need is to be with Him.

The Bible says that we are “lost,” and that our sins have led us astray from Him. We have walked away from our Creator, and therefore from the purpose we were created for. If we are lost, then our greatest need is to be found.

This Sunday at Liberty Hill we’ll be looking at how Jesus Christ is God’s answer to our greatest need. It is through Jesus that we who once were lost can now know the satisfaction of being found. Join us for Sunday School at 9:30 AM, and worship at 10:30 AM, as we see how Jesus makes an eternal difference for us.
