God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on petrol, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself.
C. S. Lewis

Mr. Lewis puts a profound truth so simply. Hearts are engines that drive the human machine.

We are designed to live completely dependent, fully satisfied if you will, on Christ alone!

Additives

When we try to run on anything other than the pure essence of Christ, we end up wearing ourselves…

13 “My people have committed a compound sin:
    they’ve walked out on me, the fountain
Of fresh flowing waters, and then dug cisterns—
    cisterns that leak, cisterns that are no better than sieves.
Jeremiah 2:13, Message

We can do ourselves no greater favor that to forgo the substitutes we try to fill ourselves with and go straight for the good stuff!
