A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
As we walk through the “Vanity Fair” of life, what is it that attracts or distracts you the most?
That dress? 👗
Those shoes? 👠
That man? 👨
That job? 👩🏫
That house? 🏡
That car? 🚗
“Vanity Fair” originally meant “a place or scene of ostentation or empty, idle amusement and frivolity”—a reference to the decadent fair in John Bunyan’s 1678 book, The Pilgrim’s Progress.
I’ve enjoyed that book for many years and I’m so aware of the pull and power of material things as I walk through this life under their hypnotic attraction. Sometimes I succumb!
None of these last.
They fade, they end, break down, or are taken.
And then I remember.
There is an eternal, everlasting unchanging, life giving God.
In the end, it’s just me and God.
And God is enough!

In Jesus we have everything we need, sometimes I forget that then I am reminded of a song we sing in our services sometimes, Jesus at the Centre. There is a line that says, ‘Nothing in this world will ever do!’ and we have to remind ourselves of that and he is the one who can only satisfy our souls.
