Today we wrap up our series on finding contentment by discussing the source of true peace and happiness.

John MacArthur once wrote a book called Our Sufficiency in Christ. In it, he revealed the path to finding true peace and contentment, and he says there’s a single word that encompasses all the riches we find in Christ: Grace. What a magnificent word it is. It’s used more than 150 times in the New Testament to speak of divine favor, bestowed on undeserving people. It is the means by which we receive every physical and spiritual benefit.

People the world over search all their lives for peace, and who doesn’t want to be truly content? But we look for it everywhere but where it is. Chasing adventure or money or career success will, well—it will leave you empty.

Maybe you’ve been running hard for a long time so that you can advance in a career that you find meaningful. There’s nothing wrong with that. So long as there’s balance, and your life can remain focused on Jesus. The Bible tells us very bluntly that anything else will leave us unsatisfied.

And at the very least, you can start by finding even one or two minutes in your day before sun up or late in the evening and just pray. Tell God that climbing the ladder at work is leaving you strangely empty.

The Bible isn’t some interesting old book. It’s not just some historical treasure, it’s life itself. Why? Because from beginning to end, it points us to Jesus Christ, who made us.

Resolve right now, even as you’re sitting at your desk, to begin getting to know Christ. And sooner rather than later, you will feel your anxiety lesson and your priorities shift. You’ll discover what many have looked for in the wrong places for centuries. You’ll find peace for your soul.

Writing in 2 Corinthians, Paul said of Christ’s message to all of us, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”

Philippians 4:12–13 says, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I’ve learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

Realizing all this, your circumstances might not change, but you will change for the better—for all time.

Let’s pray.

Father God, you are sovereign and that should make us calmer. Your power upholds everything in the universe, and you are good. You are not some impersonal being or one who is indifferent to our needs. Help us seek your Son Jesus at every turn. In Jesus’ name, amen.
