Thoro Harris penned a hymn titled ‘All That Thrills My Soul is Jesus’.  The chorus starts with that phrase and then continues ‘He is more than life to me’.  This sentiment should be the basis of our belief.  There are many things in this world that will thrill the souls of many, but all of them will eventually pass and many will leave heartache.  If we truly want our souls to be thrilled in a manner that will never leave us, we need only to look to Jesus.  The thrill He provides will last forever.

    In the New Living Translation, Philippians 3:8 says, “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ.”  As this verse says, to be truly thrilled by Him, we need to discard everything else, as refuse that needs to be removed from our lives.  Anything not of Him, will eventually draw us away from Him.

    There is only one thing in this world that will thrill the soul and carry it through eternity, Jesus.
