“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”Jeremiah 29:13 NIVUK
“To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.’” Mark 12:33 NIVUK
“So do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:31-33 NIVUK
Where does God live? Do you know? Are you interested in knowing? And if you do know where He lives, how can you find Him or go to where He is? Can you just flag down a taxi and tell it to take you to where God lives? Can you use your GPS and plot in coordinates to God’s dwelling place? How many candles will you burn to light up a path that leads to where God is? How many bells will you ring to clear the way that leads to God’s residence?
When you wake up in the morning and say a prayer and ask God to reveal Himself to you, will He just come into your room and take you by the shoulders and give you a good morning hug?
When you kneel or bow down a hundred times a day, will that convince God to come out of His secret place? When you pretend to be angry with God and with His business and turn your back on Him who created you and walk off in a huff, will God run after you and say to you “look! Here I am!?” Will God get down from where He is to cuddle and comfort you in a time of sorrow and loss? When you devote yourself to living inside a temple dedicated to God, will He appear to you and take you to the place where is stays? Will He give you a tour of His home, cook a meal for you or serve you tea and coffee?
Where does God live? And how can you get to where God lives? God lives in Heaven and to get there you must take some interest and make a move to know how to get to His dwelling place.
The only way true to get to Heaven is by seeking out Jesus Christ to take you there. He is the only one who can lead you to God’s Heaven. By listening to Jesus, by believing in and obeying Him will get to see God at work in your life while you are alive and certainly get to see Him face to face when you leave this world!
Until then, don’t just live as you please or sit like a lame vegetable expecting that somehow your pastor, priest or religious guru or whoever can take you to Heaven. They cannot while you are alive and they cannot most especially after you are stone cold dead. Their prayers and incense will certainly not guarantee that your soul will somehow weave its way through the portals of the place where God rules as King!
Check out Jesus Christ today. Take a closer look at what He is telling you. Do not just assume that the beliefs of the Church or Christians are ancient relics, not worth listening to in this 21st Century. Do not be foolish or stupid. Stop and think carefully about your destiny today! Where will you spend your eternity? Will it be in God’s Kingdom or will it be in another place where you will forever regret your slowness of understanding?
Seek out God today through Jesus Christ your Saviour! And do not put off your search for God to tomorrow. Start now!
To find God you have to embark on an adventure. In this adventure you are going to have to make some effort.
