It's All About The Seek

Matthew 2:1-2, 9:12

Seek is not someday or tomorrow.  It’s not just a look or a gaze. It’s not an inquiry or an interest.  It’s not a try or attempt for a while. It’s not for some time and it’s not I did or done or after while or soon.  (Deuteronomy 4:29, Proverbs 8:7, Jeremiah 29:13)

How many of you know there is a difference between a lookyloo, a shopper, a browser, an attender, a visitor, an observer, a spectator, a fan versus a Christ follower?  How many know there’s a difference between a sipper, snacker, taster, and grazers versus being hungry?  There’s a difference between some, a part, a slice, a piece, a section, an installment, a payment, a portion versus all in.

I think when we look at our marriages, our families, our health, our finances, our relationships, our church life, and our lives with Christ, we see a lot of people that have lost their seek or they’ve slowed down their seek or they’ve stopped their seek.

I.  (Matthew 6:33) When I think about seekers, I can’t help but think about these wise men. 

    A.  They made Jesus a priority, not a convenience, not a chance, and not an accident.

    B.  They put amazing effort and energy into seeking Him.

    C.  They put tremendous sacrifice into seeking Jesus.

    D.  They were extremely rewarded for seeking Jesus.

II.  (Psalm 63:8)  What I love about these wise men is they didn’t stop seeking Him. 

                A.  Why do people stop seeking?

1.  They get distracted.

2.  There is inconsistency.

3.  There is sin.

III.  (Hebrews 11:6, Proverbs 12:24, 27, Proverbs 13:4, Proverbs 10:4)  What I love about these wise men is that they just weren’t excited but were diligent seekers.

                 A.  Diligent is the constant effort to accomplish something. It’s a persistence and a relentlessness. It’s a painstaking effort. 

  • Ø Nehemiah was able to rebuild the walls because of…
  • Ø Jericho’s walls came down because of…
  • Ø Naaman received his healing because of …
  • Ø The woman with the issue of blood was healed because of…
  • Ø The paralytic carried by the four friends was healed because of…
  • Ø Blind Bartimaeus was healed because of…
  • Ø Elijah’s servant saw the rain over the sea because of…
  • Ø Elisha raised the dead boy because of diligence.

The word is diligence.

              B.  (Luke 11:5-10)  The word is importunity which means shameless and persistence.

              C.  (Job 8:5-6) The word is awake which means to stir himself up.

In Conclusion

It’s all about the seek.
