It is the first Sunday of December, church service started early today since it is also the first Sunday of the month and there will be a church hopping at another town about an hour from our town. When I went to church it is half empty but later on more people came, the scriptural topic for this Sunday is about “Seeking Christ at Christmas”, and the scripture reading can be found in the book of Jeremiah 29:13 which say “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” It is definite promise from God that if we will seek Him, we will find Him. These promises can also be found in the Book of Deuteronomy 4:29 – “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” and Matthew 7:8 – “For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
On reading these verses thoroughly we might noticed that the promises are assuring but we should take note that these promises has conditions, in Jeremiah and Deuteronomy we are ask to seek heartily, with all are heart and great determination while in Matthew we are ask to seek continuously.
Well, I have blogged that I seek for God’s comfort and when I found Him, I found peace and learn to slow down, I learn to control myself, I learned to wait and I found hope that everything is possible, a heart that truly loves doesn’t give up after all.
According to our Pastor says there are two kinds of people in the world, those who seek God and those who didn’t find God. He said it is true that there are a lot of selfish people who are always busy and pretending to love the Lord but they didn’t want Him at all just like King Herod who is mentioned in the bible who wanted to find the new born Jesus. We should not let ourselves to be like a man without a name in the bible, we should be a good Christian who loves one another. Do you have an idea who’s the man without name in the bible?
