In Search of the Truth

“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13 NKJV).

Some people claim they’re seeking truth. They say they want to know the truth.

But if you were to say, “That’s amazing! I’d like to share some truth with you from the Bible,” they don’t want to hear it.

So you say, “Have you ever read it?”

“No.”

“Well, can I quote to you from it? Because Jesus said—”

“I don’t what to hear about what Jesus said. Put that away.” And suddenly they’re irritated and angry with you.

I suggest that such a person doesn’t want to know the truth. Because if they don’t believe the Bible is the Word of God, if they think it’s simply a bunch of made-up stories, then why would they care if you believe it? And why would they care if you quote from it?

When nonbelievers take offense to the Bible, it says to me they know there’s power in the message of the Bible.

It’s the same reason people take the Lord’s name in vain and why they punctuate a sentence with the holy name of Jesus Christ. They don’t invoke the name of anyone else. So in their own way, they’re acknowledging the power that’s in the name of Jesus Christ.

I think some people go to church because they like something peripheral about it, but they’re not really into a relationship with Christ himself. On the other hand, if a person really wants to know God, they will listen to the message of the gospel.

If you really want to know the truth, God will make Himself known to you. In Jeremiah 29:12-13 God said, “Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (NKJV).

God will reveal Himself to true seekers.
