What do you think about this?

Some time ago when I was talking to a friend of mine this thought came to my mind and I'd like to know what do you think about it. Do you agree or disagree? And why?

The emptiness inside of you cannot be filled unless you are aware of its presence. And the best way to show this emptiness is to fill it up.

I know that at first glance you may see it illogical. If the emptiness cannot be filled without you knowing about it, how can the best way to show it be filling it up (but you still can't do that without knowing about it)? Let me explain what I mean by the statement above. Bible teaches that we all fall short of the glory of God (R 3:23). We fell into sin and became spiritually empty. There is (or was) emptiness inside of each one of us. This emptiness can be filled only by Jesus and His sacrificial love for us. If you are Jesus' your emptiness has been filled with love and joy for now you are a child of God. But if you are not living with Jesus in your life - you remain empty. And you are not able to fill your emptiness on your own. There's nothing that would be great enough to fill us up but Jesus. And not that we're not able to fill ourselves up - we don't even know that we need to be filled up! We are so blind in our sins that we don't even know we need help. And that's why there's the second sentence in the statement, mainly: the best way to show this emptiness is to fill it up. As we read the first sentence we see it's illogical for us to be able to fill this emptiness up. That's why we need somebody else to do it. Somebody who is not blind. Somebody who knows the truth - somebody who is the Truth - Jesus Christ. He is the only one who is able to fill the emptiness that is inside of us completely. The only one who can satisfy us entirely. When we receive Him into our lives He starts slowly filling us up with His love. And He is not done when we're full of His love. He keeps on filling and what happens is that we start to overflow. And we can be used as instruments of God's love and grace to others. And why does Jesus overfill us with His love? Because He loves us so much...
