Our Theme for 2022
Running on Empty:
How God works through our emptiness, not in spite of it
We tend to look at the emptiness in our lives and see it as our biggest problem. But that’s not how God sees it. When God looks into the emptiness of our lives, he sees it as … his greatest opportunity. Because God does his best work with empty. He always has. The story of the Bible shows us how God has worked for good in the lives of his people again and again, not in spite of the emptiness in their lives, but uniquely in it and through it. And that gives us hope that he will do the same in the empty places of our lives.
Over three sessions together at OneLove, we’re going to see profound emptiness experienced in the seemingly insatiable cravings of the Israelites in the wilderness, the thirst in the woman at the well, and the rich young ruler who came to Jesus in search of the one thing he couldn’t buy with his money. And in each of these stories we’ll witness God filling the emptiness with his grace and kindness, with his presence and purpose. We don’t want to fill the emptiness in our lives with things that will never satisfy, things that will not last. Rather, we long to be “filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:19).
