you ever wondered why you're thinking about God?
What's your reason? You should be aware of your aspirations and motivations, because you may be looking for the wrong thing.
For example, perhaps you're a seeker because you want to find greater happiness. What if you do find God, but your life circumstances lead to less happiness? Will you feel cheated? Believers often report that God gives them greater joy, meaning, and purpose in life. But nearly every believer will also admit to experiencing periods of difficulty.
So this is a good question to ask yourself: What am I looking for? And, conversely, what does God offer me?
As you read God's book, the Bible, you'll discover how much He's already given. But He may not give you exactly what you've anticipated. So expect the unexpected, and make it your goal to find God, no matter what the outcome or perks. The bottom line is that a true seeker seeks the Giver of life, not just His gifts.
2. How big do
you want your God to be?
Of course, some people are fearful that God wants to throw out all the furniture and condemn their house as un-inhabitable. But nothing could be further from the truth! God created us to be in relationship with Him and with each other. Through the Bible, God tells us that He wants us to enjoy this life in a way that's in line with His purpose for us.
But the question remains: Do you realize that God wants to be a powerful presence in your life, not just an idea in your head?
Many seekers declare intellectual reasons for dismissing the claims of the Bible, but in truth, they are not willing to give up some activity they know is offensive to God. If that's you, you need to know that God will take you as you are, but He doesn't want to leave you as you are. He wants you to let Him make you into what He wants you to be.
do you think Jesus is?
Many seekers discover that when they deal with the person of Jesus, they find answers to many of their other questions at the same time.
Is there a God?
Does God love
is the right one?
What do I have
to do to live forever?
How can I experience
meaning and purpose in life?
According to the Bible, until a seeker comes to terms with Jesus, he or she hasn't dealt with the issue that's most important in starting a relationship with God.
Consider this reality: Jesus is the most influential person in history. A poor itinerant preacher, the son of a carpenter but also the Son of God, changed the entire course of world history.
How can any serious spiritual search overlook Him? For example, today's date is based on a reckoning that hinges on Jesus' life. Because of Him, people were moved to split world history into two eras "before Him" and "after Him" (B.C. and A.D.).
will you respond to Jesus?
Salvation in Jesus is a totally free gift, and receiving it is as easy as saying, "Jesus, I acknowledge my sin and Your payment for it on the cross. I now ask You to be my forgiver and my God." But you must respond personally and deliberately, or the gift will remain unopened and unenjoyed.
