Are You a Seeker as the Wise Men of Old?

Are you seeking for peace, comfort, health, security, possessions and solutions to life's problems? Such a man was seeking; his name was Zacchaeus who was the chief among the publicans and very rich. And HE SOUGHT TO SEE Jesus..." (Luke 19:2-3)

His status, his riches, his friends could NOT answer his need of Life and could not answer his life's needs.

THE SOLUTION IS IN A PERSON, the Person being THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. To the sinner seeking the Savior, God says: "Ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13). Wise men still seek Him.

SUCH A SAVIOR IS SEEKING SINNERS. Jesus said, "The Son of Man is come TO SEEK and TO SAVE that which was LOST" (Luke 19:10). God was willing to pay the necessary price to rescue the perishing ones: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him SHOULD NOT PERISH, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

ARE YOU AN HONEST SEEKER? "And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? A wicked and adulterous generation SEEKETH after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed" (Matthew 16:3-4). "When Thou saidst, SEEK ye My Face; my heart said unto Thee, Thy face, LORD, will I SEEK" (Psalm 27:8). Do you really expect to bypass God and God*s Word and find the truth? Jesus Christ is seeking you. Are you really seeking Him? He invites you to come and rely upon HIS WORD and HIS ABILITY to SAVE and to KEEP you.

"SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify OF ME" (John 5:39). "And Jesus said unto them, I am the BREAD OF LIFE: he that COMETH to ME shall never hunger; and he that BELIEVETH on ME shall never thirst" (John 6:35). "But WITHOUT FAITH it is impossible to please HIM: for he that COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE that HE IS, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6). "SEEK ye the LORD while HE may be found, call ye upon HIM while HE is near" (Isaiah 55:6).

Come and share with us the satisfying truth of God*s Love Letter to you - the Bible. "But these are written, that YE MIGHT BELIEVE that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing YE MIGHT HAVE LIFE through His Name" (John 30:31).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
