Looking for God

Verse
James 4:8
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you…

Message
Many people are looking for God, but when they find Him or are close to meeting Him, they turn away; their decisions are usually based on preconceptions of who He is.

People want to worship a supreme being or a god who can offer them all their needs in this life: power, peace and everything they lack.

People want a god they can have a relationship with. We all yearn for a Godly Father because, at one point in time or another we felt like spiritual orphans being battered by the cares of life, which took advantage of us because we were all alone.

Spiritual orphans jump from temple to temple, church to church or any other place of worship in search of something or someone real. They are looking for God, and He is right around them, waiting for them to draw close to Him: to understand why He sent His Son Jesus, so that they can receive everything in Him.

Amen
