“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:13

People are running up and down, spending money, developing relationships, only to be disappointed, discouraged, and still empty in their hearts. Some say that there is a God shape vacuum in every human that can only be filled by God, and that’s true.

Man is searching, but he is searching for a god that agrees with his morality, a god that would certainly send no one to hell for the wrongs they commit. Some say, God gave us these passions and desires, what’s wrong with fulfilling them? God understands that abortions can be justified, and same sex marriages are also honorable and sacred, many go about with this believe.

Friends, unless man accepts Christ and His words, he will never know the true God, in this life or the life to come. Instead of searching for God on the stairway to heaven, man finds many gods as he goes down the spiral of sin, and those gods are controlled by the god of this world, who will lead him to eternal destruction. Proverbs 14:12 says “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end there of are the ways of death.”

Even in the Christian world, man creates in his mind, a god that is sympathetic to unfaithfulness, and infidelity. They say surely God understands and He knows that we can’t be perfect but that is a deception and it’s scary.

I believe that when people go looking look for another church, because the pastor preaches that God demands holiness and purity in their lives, they look for a church that agrees with their lifestyle, and a god that agrees with them, in spite of what the Word says, and they usually find one. They have designed their own god, who fits right in to their lifestyle.

Are you really searching for truth, or are you happy with the status quo? Heb 12:14, you know “without holiness no man shall see the Lord:” What are you searching for?

Are you like the rich young ruler, just looking for religion with no commitment. There is no joy in that kind of life. Are you like the prodigal son, looking for greener grass, a good time, are you weary of worldly pursuits that exclude God from your life? You know that does not satisfy.

Or, are you like the Ethiopian Eunuch, searching for truth? Isa 55:6-7 “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
