Drinking lots of water is good for your health - drinking it at home, at work, and while traveling. When your cup or bottle is empty, you can just trade it for a full one.

It's a great idea - taking what is empty and replacing it with what is full. You can also hand Jesus a life that is pretty empty, and He will gave you back a life that is amazingly full. He's done that for countless people, and He would love to do that for you. He said in John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy" - that's the devil He's talking about - "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

A senior football player in high school had great things happen in his senior year. He had wanted four things - a championship, a scholarship, more friends, and a closer family. He had gotten all four, but he was still sad and really frustrated and asking, "Why am I so empty?"

That's the question many people have - people of all ages. There is this emptiness that nothing seems to fill, and it's not for lack of trying. We've hoped that the hole in our heart would be filled by a relationship, by achievement, by experiences, by a family, or by a religion. We keep coming up empty, unsatisfied, unfulfilled, and wondering what goes in this hole in our heart.

Jesus is the only perfect fit for the hole in your heart. The Bible actually reveals that "all things were created by Him and for Him" (Colossians 1:16). You were created by Jesus, you were created for Jesus, and you're going to have a hole in your heart until you have Jesus. Tragically, we've chosen to live "for me" instead of "for Him." This hijacking of our life from our Creator - this sin - has put us in a futile orbit away from Him. Jesus came and Jesus died to pay the price for our rebellion so we could finally belong to the One we were made for.

This day could be the day when you hand your empty to Jesus, and in exchange He gives you a life that is finally full - because He's in it. To make that happen, you have to reach for Him, surrender the self-rule of your life, and put your trust in Him to be the forgiver of every wrong thing you've ever done. Now, if you've never done that, and you are ready to belong to Him, tell Him, "Jesus, I'm Yours."

If you've been empty, it’s because you've been missing the One you were made for. Today is your day to trade in empty for full.
