There’s a story about a proud young man who came to Socrates asking for knowledge. He walked up to the muscular philosopher and said, “O great Socrates, I come to you for knowledge.”
Socrates recognized a pompous numbskull when he saw one. He led the young man through the streets, to

When God reveals He is blessing us:
When He hides He is building us

GOD IS SEEKING ME OUT
Nikki was a Jewess. Born of Jewish parents and raised in the Temple, she had never wanted anything to do with the church. But just because her friend Dana had invited her, she agreed to attend go - just this once.
The next week she came back. And the next week, and the
An artist, seeking to depict on canvas the meaning of evangelism, painted a storm at sea. Black clouds filled the sky. Illuminated by a flash of lightning, a little boat could be seen disintegrating under the pounding of the ocean. Men were struggling in the swirling waters, their anguished faces

Sheep Wander, Shepherds Seek
My friend, Rev. Tom Goode sent me a quote by Margaret Guenther: To be fully known is not possible in our human relationships, but it is the foundation of our relationship with Christ. To be known, fully known, is both painful and profoundly comforting. We accept the
Here is the message Solomon is seeking to communicate to us today from Ecc. 6:10-12
1. God knows everything we do not!
2. God has already named all the events in our life and it’s up to us to invite God into our life-time.

"THE TROUBLE WITH PEPOPLE WHO ARE NOT SEEKING A SAVIOUR NOR SALVATION IS THAT THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF SIN. IT IS A PECULIAR FUNCTION OF THE LAW TO BRING SUCH AN UNDERSTANDING TO A MAN'S MIND AND CONSCIENCE. THIS IS WHY GREAT EVANGELICAL PREACHERS 300 YEARS AGO IN THE TIME OF THE

UNDERSTANDING "ASK, SEEK, KNOCK"
Imagine you are looking for someone – let’s say it’s your long lost friend from high school. The first step is to ask around from people who might know him and where he lives, what he’s doing, how you might locate him. Now that might satisfy your curiosity, but

HIDE AND SEEK WITH GOD
This week I have been hammered by the immensity of what it means to "abandon," "forsake," or "leave alone" the omnipresent God, God who is everywhere. How is that possible? It is ONLY possible if God allows us to leave, allows us to turn our back upon God Himself.

LOVE IS NOT SELF-SEEKING

Shopkeeper Seeks Revenge on Bitter Rival
What you believe about Jesus determines what you do with him.

Seeking the feet of Jesus on the farm during prayer so that I might one day hear Him say “Well done good and faithful servant”. Instead He spoke to my heart, that if I wanted to be a “good and faithful servant”, one thing I would have to do all the days of my life and that is to follow where His

When a church seeks a pastor, they want the strength of an eagle, the grace of a swan, the gentleness of a dove, the friendliness of a sparrow, and the night hours of an owl. And when they catch that bird, they

A mother once approached Napoleon seeking a pardon for her son. The emperor replied that the young man had committed a certain offense twice and justice demanded death. "But I don’t ask for justice," the mother explained. "I plead for mercy." "But your son does not deserve mercy," Napoleon replied.
Leonard Ravenhill -- God seeks for a man to “stand in the gap.” We want to be clothed upon with power; God wants to strip us. We want power; He wants to expose our weakness. We want large bonuses for small
