Someone is looking for you.
No, don’t bother turning around looking, because you won’t be able to see who it is. But someone is there, that someone is not giving up either. You will be sought out until the day you leave this planet.
And do you know what’s really scary? This person knows everything about you. I’m not just talking about where you live, how tall you are, what your age is. We’re talking the big stuff here. Like your darkest secrets, your deepest fears, and your highest goals. But that’s not what this person wants or even needs.
He needs you.
I know I know…being followed is a very creepy thing. Unless of course it isn’t really stalking. What if instead you were being pursued by someone who is trying to give you something of great value? For example, if you lost an expensive piece of jewelry that was picked up by someone else, wouldn’t you want to be pursued by that person? If someone has an expensive item that I’ve misplaced, I want to be stalked!
That’s exactly what’s happening here, folks. You lost something much more valuable than a piece of jewelry. You lost your life by trying to do things your way, and someone is trying to give it back to you. That someone is Jesus Christ. If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, here is what the Bible has to say about you:
- They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted. (Isaiah 62:12)
Jesus sacrificed Himself on the Cross so that He could offer you not only life eternal, but life that is full. You wear the name “sought after”, because Christ is looking to provide you with a plan and a purpose that is infinitely better than any plans and schemes you could devise on your own.
Here are Jesus’ own words:
- “My purpose is to give life in all its fullness. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:10-11)
See the connection? He laid down His life so that you could have life in all its fullness. In other words, Jesus’ death and resurrection provided a blueprint for your existence that is second to none.
But there is one catch…
You have to let Him find you. You have to get on your knees and let Him know that you are ready to accept His plan for your life. It may not be the easiest or most comfortable, you probably won’t make a lot of money, but I guarantee it will be the greatest adventure you could possibly imagine.
Someone is looking for you. Now it’s OK to turn around and see who it is, because you know who He is.
Are you ready to accept God’s plan for your life? Why or why not?
How does it make you feel to be “sought out”?
Who in your life needs to know that Jesus is looking for them?
