God's Word says you cannot know His Son, Jesus, unless the Father draws you close to Him. He seeks you and He searches your heart! He knows your present thoughts, and your future thoughts. He is pleased when He finds you seeking Him too!
"The Lord says, "I look deep down inside human hearts. I see what is in people's minds. I reward a man in keeping with his conduct. I bless him based on what he has done." Jeremiah 17:10
Jesus Christ is the only way to know God. He is the only one who can keep us from being seperated from God. Jesus is our loving Savior and Lord.
"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."
Our biggest blessing comes when our Heavenly Father draws us to His Son, Jesus. God wants us to know we have nothing to do with our salvation. It is all from God. It is all Jesus! He sent Him to find us and teach us about Himself. His Holy Spirit draws us close so we can receive the Father's greatest gift of love! We should always give thanks to God for His loving kindness!
The Critters love to play hide and go seek. Joshua is "it" and he will search for the others. He has to count to ten and keep a watchful eye. They are not easy to find. When he starts to look, they will begin running to home base. They must touch the tree to win the game!
It's the same with God. One way God brings us to His Son, Jesus, is to have others tell us about Him and how knowing Him has blessed their lives. Everyone seeks God. They may not even know it. God is seeking all people. They must receive Jesus as Savior and allow Him be the boss of their lives for Him to become their Lord. They will win an eternal life with God in Heaven.
