Blog - Seek me and Live
For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel: “Seek me and live….” – Amos 5:4
God is pro-life. Now that is a loaded statement in our political climate, but it is true! God says, through his prophet Amos, that He wants us to live!
God is pro-choice. Now that is an even more-loaded statement! Those might be “fightin’ words!” But look in Deuteronomy 30:19 – “…I have set before you life and death…therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” God wants us to live. Jeremiah 29:11 says God thinks good thoughts toward us. 2 Peter 3:9 says that God is not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance.
Do we want to live? Do we want to be saved? And do we want to be saved to the fullest extent: delivered, healed, preserved, saved, doing well, whole? We have only to set our hearts to seek God. Knowing God is the very most life we can have. It is truly, in the words of Jesus in John 10:10, life more abundantly!
