What One is Searching For

“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”
–Proverbs 8:17

When informed recently that an acquaintance would be leaving the area, the remark was made: “I like him. I hope he finds what he has been looking for.”

ONLY later–after reflecting further on what was said–was it decided that WHAT it is one is “looking for” depends upon the condition of the man.

IF one is of the world, no doubt one looks for the things of the world.

IF one is of the kingdom of heaven, one looks for a better place, a better time and/or the author of such a time and place.

One of the things the worldly search for–at least they CLAIM to search for it–is a better world.

Another way of saying this might be “They are looking for peace.”

But, despite the many promises and claims of the wicked, the world will not get any better.  Therefore, the worldly will not know peace.

“But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”
–Isaiah 57:20-21

The search for peace always begins and ends with the LORD.

Sadly, almost to a man: the worldly have rejected the LORD.

And so, the worldly will keep on searching.

One of the best illustrations of this circumstance is the condition of the rich and celebrated.

Though such folks have wealth, power, fame–in short, ANYTHING which the world can supply–many are not at peace.

Which is why a great many take their own lives.

And a great many more, in their quest for peace, take the long way around with their immoderate associations with alcohol, drugs and other distractions the world offers.

Others–knowing the destructiveness of such diversions–try to “lose themselves” in their work, family or more wholesome pursuits.

ULTIMATELY, their choice is between the things of this world and peace.

However, they do not see it that way: mostly, they believe they can have both.

BUT that is NOT the way this world was set up.

Many, craving the things of this world, will attempt to find peace by resorting to the distractions of the world they have chosen: alcohol, pills, sex, drugs, rock n’ roll…

And so, once more: the worldly will keep on searching.

“There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.”
–Isaiah 48:22

HAS the reader been on a search for “peace“?

HAS the reader been on a search for peace but called such an undertaking–as is popular in America–“the pursuit of happiness“?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
