Senator Ken laid down on his buffalo leather Dorchester sofa in his pent house apartment. Beside him were 2 empty bottles of Johnnie Walker Black Label VSOP and Courvoisier Cognac, he had finished both in 2 hours because he wanted to knock himself out and drown the depression in his heart.
He had everything he had ever dreamed about; he had beautiful homes all over the world, a wife and a young pretty mistress, children, highly placed friends, he was loved by his community and the Nigerian public yet he felt so empty and sad. He felt like committing suicide. Many times, he had put a gun to his head to end it all.
Senator Ken had felt that happiness would come when he reached the pinnacle of his dreams but he was very disappointed; his problems grew but happiness never came.
He desperately needed something but he didn't know what it was until he turned on the TV and started scrolling through the channels. For some reason, he turned to a Christian Channel and a man was preaching; it was as though the man was talking about Senator Ken's life story, he cried like a baby as he listened and by the time the sermon was over, Senator Ken knew exactly what he needed; he needed Jesus. Right there, Senator Ken fell on his knees and gave his life to Jesus and a wind of peace came into his life, he felt so happy and light, he had never felt that way in his life before. Today Senator Ken is a pastor and one of the most influential men in Nigeria.
There is a vacuum in your life that only Jesus can fill, if you tried to fill the vacuum with money, cars, love and whatever you can think about, it will not fit! Many people go all over the world looking for healing and happiness, they marry and divorce, do plastic surgery and many other things just to be happy.
The truth is that what they are actually trying to fill is a vacuum in their life. Only Jesus can fill that vacuum, He said in Matthew 11:28 (NLT) Come to Me all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
What are you weary about? What is making you depressed? What heavy burdens are you carrying? What is making you cry? What is giving you sleepless nights? Jesus said "COME TO ME! Come to Jesus today, don't hesitate! The peace and joy and happiness He brings is nothing like you have experienced. I know you have tried many things but please try Jesus, it's an experience you will never recover from! Don't wait till tomorrow, try Him today!
My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. Shalom
