In God's Presence 2

"In church people can find spiritual gifts - Too many people today, seek the gifts more than the gift giver.  The gifts become the thing.  The gifts become the relationship.  The gifts come before obedience and faith and trust and loyalty and agreement and praise and worship.

But God is not a spiritual gift.

In Church people can find blessing - There are tens of millions of people that go to church for the blessing and they will find it, because there are countless blessings given out in God=s sanctuaries. 

But God is not a blessing.

Who among us is coming to find God?  Who is seeking for God to reveal more of Himself to them? 
Not for the benefits
Not for the accolades
Not for the notoriety
Not to be noticed
Not to judge ourselves against another
Not to prove something
Not for any reason other than to know God better.

I wish you could see how much God just wants you to seek Him.
Not just until you are saved
Not just until you are sanctified
Not just until you are filled with the Holy Ghost
Not just until you receive a spiritual gift
Not just until you have entered into the inner court
Not even until you have come into the holy of holies
God wants you to seek Him until He is found and then to seek Him again and again to become better acquainted."
