Soul life depends on objective meaning in God’s story and ecstatic union with God’s Person. Only people who aim high enough are in line to experience both. Explain and discuss.

      Soul satisfaction – a filling of that empty spot in the core of one’s being. The center of it is not a ‘problem-free’ life, but that our lives have meaning and values.
      We are loved by a loving God whose steadfast love never changes – Rest in His love, and let His love compels us to love others. There’s a greater love – He laid down His life for us, that we may live beyond ourselves.
      We are created with a divine purpose – Enjoy Him (worship) and join Him. There’s a greater story – His story – beyond our ‘story.’
      We are destined to be with Him forever. Be at peace with Him – His presence never leave us. There’s a greater destiny beyond the troubles we encounter, the new heavens and earth is the only place without pain and tears.

      “vision that is low” keeps us happy for awhile, but it soon fade off, and we have to look for another ‘object’ to give us that “gratification.”

      Aim high – Aim for Christ!
      Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
      For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. (Psalm 107:9)
      The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord! May your hearts live forever! (Psalm 22:26)
      In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11)

      Soul life depends on an intimate relationship with God through Christ. The pressing in into God’s Presence for that divine exchange to encounter His Touch. Drinking in of His cleansing stream and being intoxicated by His awesome and consuming Love. This desire for God is made available to all believers and all we need to do is to guide them into it! Once they taste of His Goodness every other desires will naturally take second place! Slave to Righteousness… Imstead of being slave to the flesh!

      Eye on the Prize, Paul said, if we do not aim for the ultimate desire or seek it, A focused relationship on God, all the lesser desires consume us and distract us from the true desire that will fill the core of our soul. Those distractions, those desires and passions miss direct us from the chance , the actual event of being in union with the trinity, we divert our eyes, mind, and goals, without striving for that we loose a chance to hit the mark if even only for a moment. Only a person relying on the trinity to get them their can hit the mark.
