Looking For Jesus

December 14th, 2010


Matthew 2:1-12

When the wise men came looking for the messiah, they expected to find a king. The stars announced one worthy of worship.

When Peter rudely interrupted the Master’s private prayer time, he declared, “Everyone is looking for you!”(Mark 1:37).

As the sun peaked over the horizon, Jesus quietly slipped away to a place where he could be alone; but the people went looking for him and invaded his quiet time (Luke 4:42).

After the 5,000 had eaten, the crowd realized Jesus and his disciples were not around, so they went in search of Jesus (John 6:24).

Desperately wanting to see who Jesus was, Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore fig tree (Luke 19:4).
Would you like to see Jesus? “‘You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD” (Jer. 29:13-14).

The writer of Hebrews reminds us that as we come to God, we “must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Heb. 11:6).
