THE STORY OF JESUS: John 6:41-51
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them.” (John 6:44)
God is actively seeking everyone (Acts 17:26-27).
We do not find God, God finds us; we do not discover life, we receive it.
Religion is our attempt to find God; Jesus is God’s finding us.
Every religion is a response to the God that seeks us.
God is the initiator, God is the Mover, and we respond.
God is at work in all our lives, showing us how we need Him, His help, His LIFE.
I grew up singing this hymn: ‘I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew…
He moved my soul to seek him, seeking me.’
When we find ourselves thinking of God, it’s because God is thinking of us.
Everything that happens is in some way God’s attempt to draw us back.
“So that we would seek him and reach out for him and find Him.” (Acts 17:27)
When we find ourselves reaching out to God, it’s because He’s reaching out to us.
The question is, when He comes knocking, will we open the door?
Or when He offers us the Bread of Life, will we accept it?
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, its not just up to me to find You. You are already drawing me back to You. Open my eyes to see You reaching for me. Open my heart to reach back for You!
