Most people are familiar with the U2 song, but what was Bono looking for? If you read more of the lyrics you’ll realize that he professes his belief in Christ in the song, but even with his faith, he still hasn’t found what he’s looking for.
CS Lewis wrote, “If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
Another Christian that hasn’t found what he’s looking for. I can relate to these men because though I have found God, I have a different longing inside of me now—a hunger for more of God.
I think we all have a desire in ourselves for more of God on this fallen planet. We have a hope, but we wish that this hope would become a reality. There is much darkness in the world and I wish that there was more healing. I wish there was more victory over sin. I wish there were more Christians walking around rejoicing rather than defeated. I wish there was more heaven on earth. I have a vision of a better tomorrow. It’s become a part of me. It’s more than a vision—it’s a hope.
I still haven’t found what I’m looking for, but I do not plan to stop looking anytime soon.
Come Lord Jesus, come! Release heaven on earth!
