The God-shaped Vacuum and the Meaning of Life

July 22, 2013

Have you ever felt unsatisfied, let down, or even empty after you got what you thought would make you happy? You’re not alone. If we’re honest with ourselves, we all have to admit that we’ve felt this way at some point in our lives.

It turns out there’s a good reason for this.

We not only have two parts—our outward body and our inward soul—we also have a third part: our human spirit. And this third part has everything to do with the meaning of life. The video below explains why we can feel inexplicably empty and the important role of our third part.

Receiving God into us to fill our spirit is the only thing that can satisfy our deepest longing and reveal the true meaning of life.

If you enjoyed this video, we encourage you to share it with others so they too can know what the meaning of life is.

This video is based on a gospel tract entitled “The Third Part” by Bibles for America. You can see and share all our gospel tracts here. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to see more helpful videos from BfA.

    This video is so helpful because it shows not only our need for God and the great process He went through to save us, but also how He can enter into us to fill us with Himself. God’s salvation doesn’t just save us from perdition but fills us with God!

  • It shows how great God is and his true love for us

    • Yes! We are His true love. I like how this video shows God just wants us to be filled with Him as the missing part of our “puzzle.”

    I really need to let my parents watch this video. However they cannot understand English well. Is there a video of this made with Chinese caption? It would be really helpful for them to be saved!

    • Bibles for America says:

      Hi David,

      Thank you for asking! Chinese captions are available for this video. You can turn them on by clicking “CC” on the bottom right-hand corner of the YouTube player and selecting “Chinese.”
