I know sometimes we can get caught up in the motions of life, but I want to encourage all of us to continue our pursuit towards Christ.
Something my pastor said in last week really put this into perspective for me. He said,”It’s sad how many of us stop the pursuit once we’ve obtained what we want.”
He was referring to personal relationships and marriage, but I’ve realized how we sometimes do the same thing when it comes to our relationship with God. People come to find Jesus, but fail to continue the pursuit once they “have what they want.” We act like once we’ve found Him, we don’t need to seek Him anymore. Now, we don’t necessarily say that but we sure do act it.
God has called us to continually seek his face (Psalm 105:4). And although “continually” seems like a bit much, It’s what He’s called us to. We should THIRST after time with our FATHER. There is nothing more fulfilling.
Believe me, I know sometimes things get crazy and hectic, but in reality: We give time to the things we care about.
Jesus didn’t die so we could only spend 5-10 minutes with him a day.
Not spending time with God cannot be excused by lack of time or ambition. And when we do use those excuses, I believe satan lies at the fabric of them. Why? because Satan doesn’t want us spending ANY time with God. He shutters at the thought of another child being added into God’s family.
Let’s continue building each other up for the sake of The Gospel (1 Thessalonians 5:11), and pursue our call to righteousness (2 Timothy 2:22).
We’re all in this together. We have a mission. We are The Church.
