In Pursuit Of Jesus

We must pursue after Jesus.

Jesus pursues us in love.

Our relationship with Jesus is a dance of sorts. He pursues us. He stands at the door and knocks on our heart to get our attention. By His kindness, we are convicted enough to hear His voice and receive His truth. And when we give ourselves to Him, He turns around and goes the other way.

Suddenly, we are pursuing Him! Once we see who He is in our life, when we really see Him, we want more. And there is so much more to have. He lures us forward step at a time so we go deeper into His grace, further and further into the holy of holies.

If we get sidetracked, He returns to the pursuit and convicts us to come back, and then we have to run after Him again. He will never let us be satisfied with what we have. He doesn’t want us be distracted playing with the wrapping paper when we haven’t even opened the gift.

Our pursuit after Jesus must never end. We must always want more and be ready to follow Him where ever He takes us. He knows what we love, so He will always have our best interest at heart. Pursuing Him is the best love story ever.
