A Personal Note from Pastor's Pen - He's Looking For You

In the Bible, we see sinners seeking God. But it also says that no one seeks after God, that Jesus came to seek the lost. Is the Bible contradicting itself? Is he seeking us or are we seeking him? You know, years ago, when I was  growing up as a young man, there used to be a song that we would hear on   Christian radio stations and had on cd, and it went something like this. “I found what I wanted when I found the Lord”. I remember one of my       favorite singers at that time used to sing that song. One day somebody said, Did you ever listen to that song? And I told them, yes. And they said, Did you know it's not true? And I said, What do you mean? They said, You didn't find what you wanted when you found the Lord, He found you. And like most of the people after, I agree. We weren't even looking for the Lord. He came and found us, You say? Well, I went to church. How do you know the Lord wasn’t telling you to go to church? Because, God was seeking you and putting you in the right place. You are here today because the Lord is seeking you, and He wants you to come and be with Him forever, give you purpose, and soothe your soul. He wants confront you with truth and then repair your life.

I would like to remind you of a story in John Ch. 4 that is well known in the Bible. It’s the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. It's a story about Jesus crossing all kinds of barriers and going above and beyond to seek and to save someone. Does that sound familiar to you? I believe this is the story of every saved person in this room. In the story, we see how He seeks us. Then we learn how He saves us. Then we see how He sends us to be a light and testimony to others around us. My point is that Jesus is seeking you. This might be for salvation purposes which is the first reason, but also for those saved. He is seeking you to be a witness of His salvation to the world.

Luke 19:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." This is Jesus’ mission statement. He came and He got me. He sought after me. Jesus seeks after us, no matter where we are, no matter what we are, and no matter who we are. Jesus has no boundaries to his determination to come and bring us to Himself. What mercy, what love, and what grace. I am glad today that you are in the place God has for you as He is actively seeking you.
