We are on a quest.
People everywhere are searching for purpose, understanding, success, significance, and love. The pivotal moments of our lives are defined by this search. It motivates the words we say and the decisions we make. But does it ever really satisfy? Maybe what we’re really searching for is the purpose for which we were created: relationship with our Creator.
God longs for us to know Him. And He made a way for us to seek Him and to find Him. Jesus Christ. The eternal God became a man, was beaten, brutalized, crucified – so that you and I could know Him and have life. His initiative is so compelling it inspires a response. And if you just turn around, you will discover that He has been there the whole time, pursuing you.
“If you seek him, he will be found by you.”
~ 1 Chronicles 28:9
We live to know Him.
To experience the power of the Holy Spirit is to follow the example of Jesus Himself. As you step out in the power of the Holy Spirit to tell others about Jesus, God transforms you, makes you bold, and works in powerful ways that are nothing short of miraculous.
Helping others to discover Jesus Christ is the outward expression of the inward transformation that He brings about in each of our lives. When we allow His Spirit to work through us and empower us, we experience relationship with Him at a deeper level. And every day, as we take steps of faith and surrender to Him, we are becoming more and more like Jesus.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”~ Romans 15:13
