Do We Want Him?

“You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.”

James 4:3 NKJV

           God does not keep a naughty and nice list like Santa, he only keeps a list of those who want him and those who don't. A desire to know, trust, and love God is a supernatural gift. It is a gift that our Heavenly Father is seeking to plant in each of our hearts. We sadly often reject this Internal transformation and instead approach God for help with the uncomfortable consequences of living selfish lives. 

          There is only one question we need to know the answer to, do we want Jesus, or do we only want the benefits associated with him? Ask Jesus to do more than fix your problems this morning, invite him to deepen your desire to have a relationship with him.

Still Seeking His Face,

Pastor Andrew
