Where do I Find Jesus.
Thursday, November 29.
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find him if you search for him with all your heart and all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29
In our urban and suburban sprawls, there are shopping centers all around. We find shopping centers with street level shops and stores, landscape malls, and their acres of parking space for people to go out and heed the call to buy. In time pasts there were bazaars and market-places. Shopping centers are just the modern counterpart of these places. They are also social centers- especially for children and teens. Nothing has changed. It was like that in Jesus days. Luke 7:32 tells us how Jesus said His generation was “like children sitting in the market places and calling out to each other.”
The advancement in technology, marketing techniques and the sophistication of advertising, shopping centers make silent noise of buy! Buy! If we paid close attention, there is another message from Jesus Christ. “Man shall not live by bread alone.” We do not live by sports gear alone, TV sets alone, by campers and minivans alone. To be truly alive, those who live in the 21st century needs Jesus Christ. We need the living bread, who body was broken on a cross, so that we might receive Him. If we receive Him by faith, we will be nourished inwardly, and we will live eternally. Sometimes we just need to retreat from the busy noisy part of life, to a place of solitude to enjoy ourselves in God’s presence.
Memory verse: Jeremiah 29:13
“And know that I am with you always even to the end of the earth.” Jesus Christ
