“The Lord Seeks Out His Followers”
As I was researching yesterday’s message, a commentator pointed out an interesting thought.
People rarely seek the Lord God.
Instead, He seeks His own followers.
Now before you prepare to argue this point give it some thought.
Was Noah looking for God?
Did he say to the Lord God, I want to do something for you, can I build an Ark?
No, the Lord Good asked him to build the Ark
Did Abram say oh Lord God, what can I do for you?
No, God did the calling.
Does Moses say, O Lord, I feel the need to lead your people?
No, he didn’t want anything to do with that until the Lord asked.
Even then, he wasn’t excited about his call.
I invite you to read the following verses
16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”
18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets.
20 Without delay, he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
Please remember, our job in life is to be ready to serve the Lord God when he asks.
He has asked in the past, He asks in the present and will ask in the future.
The greatest ability we can give to the Lord is our availability. Amen
