Why People Feel Lost

Many people feel lost today. This is reflected in our culture — art, poetry, books, magazines, music, movies, T. V. Shows. In a time when we think we have more control we are finding most of life is out our control (example - recent disasters, terror attacks). People are doing their best to feel at home in this world. Everything centers around self. The natural inclination of the unsaved heart is to think the universe revolves around us. To think this way is spiritually insane. We refuse to believe we should live for something more than this present life. We treat this world as if it were the only home we will ever have. We concentrate on arranging it for our comfort.
We find ourselves in a age of nuclear threats, torture, oppression, terrorism, brainwashing, and natural disasters. We expected life to be friendly instead it mocks our hopes leaving us frustrated and disillusioned. We thought we were wise instead we’re like children lost in the dark we ask, “Is there a plan?”, “What’s the point of this life?” God’s world is never friendly to those who forget its maker. God alone made life and only God can tell us it’s meaning. If we want to make sense of life in this world we must know God. And if we want to know God we must turn to the Bible.
