God—The Son—Seeks Sinners~“Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, ‘Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.’And Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost’” (Luke 19:8-10).
God—The Father—Seeks Worshippers~Jesus said to her [the woman at the Samaritan well], ‘Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth’” (John 4:21-24).
What About You? ~“And the Lord said, ‘My Spirit shall not strivewith man forever” (Genesis 6:3a).“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.Let the wicked forsake his way,and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord,and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:6-7).
