We often turn to many things other than the gospel of grace. Let me rephrase that. I often turn to things (idols) instead of the gospel. God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4). So, why do we turn from God? Because we prefer our own rationale and our own resources instead of trusting God. It is easy to prefer things or people over God. Yet, our choices reveal our treasure. I pray that I will and we (as a church) will abide in and trust in Christ for all things. Every situation is a situation for us to glorify God. Let us follow Christ wholeheartedly by God's grace.
As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him. -- 1 John 2:27
The Holy Spirit will teach us all things and connect our experiences to Christ when we receive the gospel with thanksgiving.
