What captures your attention? What do you go to great lengths to pursue in order to be satisfied? Kempton’s final message begins with the premise that we are made for God’s glory; we were born to experience captivation, fascination, and delight. But rather than seeking God for that happiness we were created for, we chase after empty pursuits that always leave us wanting more.
Using the Biblical example of King Solomon, Kempton shows us that even the richest man who ever lived was not satisfied with what he had. Solomon pursued all the same things we do - wealth, accomplishment, pleasure - and yet after he gained everything he wanted, he concluded, “all was vanity.” The only true, lasting satisfaction comes from Jesus Christ - our eternal pleasure. We will never be satisfied until our hearts are satisfied in him alone.
