“You will seek me, and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
Ready Or Not Here I Come…Jesus.
There it was in bold lettering on the marquee at First United Methodist Church. During my holiday travels, those words caught my attention while sitting at a stop light in my hometown.
It was during all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and I wondered if people would even notice those words at all, and if they did, would it compel them to ready themselves for eternity with Jesus or would their thoughts drift toward an endless list of seasonal tasks not yet completed?
My thoughts deepened to how my life has drastically changed, since I started seeking Jesus and learning about the perfect gift of Christ. A gift so perfect that it would wipe my sins away and give me hope of a new and everlasting life in eternity. A life free from pain, sorrow, hatred, illness, loneliness, and worry. A life full of endless peace, love, and joy.
This is a gift I want to be ready to receive.
The most wonderful thing about the perfect love of Jesus is that it’s available to everyone. He doesn’t hide it from anyone. The key to opening this love in our own lives is our willingness to seek Him. Will you seek Jesus this holiday season and New Year?
Here’s my prayer which may help you as you pray to seek Him:
Dear Jesus, I’m so grateful that I found you. I’ll never hide from your perfect love, and I will continue to seek you so I will be ready when you come. Amen!
