My Thoughts on . . . . Being in Pursuit of _____________.

What are running after in this life? I mean, we’re all running after something, whether it’s success, or upward mobility in our jobs, or reaching goals we’ve set, or even making more money because that’s where a lot of us are. There’s nothing wrong with that if it’s not your primary goal. If it is, there is so much of life that you’re missing out on. The word “pursue” comes to mind when I think of running after something.

PURSUIT:

The act of pursuing; an effort to secure or attain; quest: any occupation, pastime, or the like, in which a person is engaged regularly or customarily.

Whatever you’re pursing it’s definitely going to involve all of your energies and efforts because that’s what you want, what you desire. It seems that many of us will do anything and everything to reach that goal, get to where we want to be or attain that level of success. And the real amazing thing about that process is some of us won’t let anything get in our way. When we are determined to pursue something, we’re focused, we’re intentional in our actions, and there is no doubt as what we’re doing. Others see us and they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we’re after something and we intend to get it at all costs. Mt thought is this: do we pursue Jesus Christ in all our getting? WOW!! I realize that’s a bomb that’s just been dropped, but it’s a true and important question we need to ask ourselves. We spend hours a day doing what we do, trying to achieve this and that, spending exasperating efforts to get what we’re pursuing but do were really go after the Lord God with that much intensity? I believe that as children of God, this should be our foremost purpose in life in everything we do. We should be pursuing Jesus with all of hearts, all of minds and all of being. When others see us pursuing Christ there should be no doubt what we’re looking for or what we’re after. Nothing should get in our way if we’re desiring Christ with our full attention. What’s keeping from this? The distractions of the world, personal agendas, other influences, and maybe, just maybe the actual goal of what we’re pursuing. Probably the biggest obstacle in our lives is the one true thing that’s keeping us from pursuing God with our whole hearts: SELF!

Just some thoughts from a men of God who desires to pray for the goodness and mercy of God to reign in the lives of His people always. Just saying . . . .

“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”
