MATTHEW 6:33_But seek ye…
The word seek involves action, effort on your part. If you sit around and wait for something to happen – it won’t. If you pour water into a pot and place it over heat, sit around and wait, something will happen – it will begin to boil. Even that required some effort on your part. If you needed to boil water, you had to find water, a pot, and some type of heat.
When you give time to seek something – you want it! Depending upon how much time and effort you put into the seeking – you really want it! Jesus is an action personality. If He tells you to seek, be certain it will require some kind of effort on your part. There is nothing sit around on your hands about Jesus!
At twelve years of age, while accompanying His family to the Passover celebration in Jerusalem, Jesus vanished. The city was packed with people. The frantic parents searched for three days. Where did they find him? Luke 2:46 (KJV), “And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors [teachers], both hearing them, and asking them questions.”
Jesus was in the temple not just seeking truth, but giving it!
Lord Jesus, Help me put action to my seeking by prayer and Bible study. Help me to seek what is true. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ is a seeker of truth—He wants me to be!
