Thought For Today: “Our Greatest Need”
Our greatest need is to seek after God, and this literally oozes out through the Bible.
In the Hebrew there are two words for seeking after God. One implies a yearning to frequently inquire, and the second is the desire to enter into someone’s presence. In the Greek there are also two words that mean to reach out and to seek in order to understand.
Therefore, seeking after God means persistence on our part to reach out to God, to enter into His presence, and to understand Him to a greater degree. It was such a seeking that motivated the Apostle Paul.
“That I may know Him (Jesus) and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.” (Philippians 3:10)
This word “to know” means more than a mere knowledge of; instead, it carries the thought of intimacy. It is to know Christ as one spouse knows another. Paul is after an intimate relationship.
And so, to seek after God is the effort on our part to reach out to God and to know Him intimately by entering into His presence.
This is our greatest need.
