Most of us want certainty in our lives, and we desire our lives to have some kind of meaning and purpose. Even when we attain the things we seek we often find that our thirst for happiness continues because, great though these things are, they don’t fully satisfy the human longing for happiness. This is where God comes in. Only union with God can satisfy our longing for truth, certainty, meaning, and ultimately love. It is a union offered to us through the Person of Jesus Christ.
