The Pursuit Of God.
Memory Verse: Seek the Lord whole He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. – Is. 55:6.
Bible Verse: 2 Chro. 15:2-4
To “seek” means to look for, search for, inquire about, investigate, pursue and strive after (Matt. 13:44-46). In Gen. 4:26, the Bible records that men began to seek God …” Then began men to call upon the name of the Lord”. The call to seek the Lord is an urgent one. It is our prayer that in our pursuit of God, we shall find Him and also be found of Him in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Why Pursue God?
God is not just available and accessible to His children, He is also near to them (Is. 50:2; 55:6; 59:1). To seek God is a command that must be obeyed (2 Chro. 14:4). God will be found if we seek Him with all our heart ( Jer. 29:11-14; 1 Chro. 28:9). He will hear and answer us (2 Chro. 7:14). God will give us rest (Matt. 28:11; 2 Chro. 14:7; 2 2 Chro. 14:10-15). God is the source of blessing, so we should seek Him (Matt. 6:33; Ps. 34:9-10). To be able to live righteously, we must seek God (Hosea 10:12). God is the only hope of everlasting life (Titus 1:2; John 5:39).
How To Pursue God
We should pursue the Lord with all our heart (Deut 4:29; Jer. 29:13). He should be sought continually (Ps. 105:4; 1 Chro. 16:11). This should be daily (Is. 58:2). We should seek Him diligently (Heb. 11:6). We should do it with humility (2 Chro. 7:14). We must realise that seeking the Lord is the source of life (Amos 5:4).
Every true child of God must see the pursuit of his Father as an inevitable and highly rewarding task.
