Lost and Found

By Faith Magbanua, July 02, 2018 06:07 AM


"Certain things are worth giving great lengths to find."

Seeking God is a way for people to accept the fact that there is indeed someone who can save them from their sins. 

However, as we get to know more about God's word we will come to a conclusion that we are the one's who are lost and God found us.

According to Matthew 13:44

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field."

Before we accepted Jesus as our personal savior, we are lost into the darkness of this world.  We are confused and we do not know where to go.  Our sense of direction is not stable, and we are easily distracted by a lot of things.

But when God came into our lives, we realize that salvation doesn't just end there.  Of course, salvation is free but we should also work on our relationship with God.

For us to grow in our Christian lives, we need to seek His words, and by seeking it we will be able to grow closer with God.

If we seek God through His word, worship and in our daily lives, we will find Him.  Over time, we will know Him on a deeper level.

The time when we still haven't received God's gift of eternal life, we are like a lost sheep who doesn't know its way back to its herd.

But Jesus, our good shepherd, took great lengths to look for us.  Even though we do not deserve any efforts for He can always replace us, He still loved us just the same as the others.

No matter what situation we are in our life, keep in mind that we must always seek God first.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

If we seek God first, just like how He first seek us, we will grow in our spiritual life and our relationship with Him will be deeper.

It is not easy to seek God first in this world, but as the parable of the woman who lost her coin and did everything to find it, Jesus took great lengths just to get us back.
