In pursuit of what?

June 30, 2009

I love the word ‘pursue’; it not only speaks of a ‘search’ but of a tenacious journey to run after and even ‘over take’ the goal in sight.

Everyone is pursuing something; ‘happiness’ being the most prevalent one in our time. Look around you, the media screams in our faces – listen to the whisperings of the world telling us to pursue personal freedom, independence, ‘respect’, the perfect relationship, career, __________; you fill in the gap.

What are you in pursuit of?

Jesus tells us to seek FIRST the Kingdom of God AND His righteousness (Matt 6:33); before anything else, before our families and homes, before our work and responsibilities we MUST be seeking first the Kingdom of God in every area of our lives.

It’s essential that we teach this principle to our children; before any discussions of career, ambition or vocation we MUST teach them to seek first, seek first, seek first; to pursue the things of God; His heart and vision for our lives.

Is the Kingdom of God reflected in every area of your life?

“He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.” (Prov 21:21)

“Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14)

This is what we must be in pursuit of; righteousness, love and peace: run hard after it, look for it in every area of your life, search for it day and night without rest.

When the world is pursuing ‘happiness’ and the need to feel complete; we can rest in the shadow of the almighty in whom we live and breath and have our being.

His sacrifice has made us complete and our pursuit in not in vain.
