Thought For The Week by Pastor Diana Rutherford

by Struthers Cumbernauld

'He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.'  Hebrews 11:6

This is a lovely thought, that there is a reward waiting for us when we truly seek to know and find God.  Our seeking is never in vain. God is waiting to reward us.  Why is it then that there are so many people who claim to be seeking to know the truth about spiritual matters but seem to have got lost in their search.  The answer lies in the word 'earnest'. 

The definition of the word 'earnest' is 'deep sincerity or seriousness.'  If we truly want to find God there must come a deep sincerity and seriousness to all of our Christian experience.  This includes our prayer life,  when we read the Bible, in our questions and discussions, when listening to sermons and our general attitude to life.  The soul who comes not to discuss the meaning of life but to find Life itself must be deeply sincere! 

Do you believe that you are able to find the One you truly seek?  Come with a deep seriousness and sincerity and God who loves to reward His children will hear your cry and give to you 'a well of water springing up into everlasting life' within you.
