... without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. [Hebrews 11:6]
When something is valuable, it's worth having, and so it's worth searching for. Jesus explains it this way: "the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found... and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." [Matthew 13:44]
Cynics say there's really no way to find God. But then they rarely bother to seek. Fact is, the Bible is our trail guide to eternity, our treasure map to riches beyond this life. Written in it are the keys to finding God. Our Father wants us to seek Him out, to know Him, and to live with Him forever.
The Apostle Paul told a crowd of cynics in Athens, "God has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us... [Acts 17: 26]
Is that a Bible on your table? Then God isn't very far away from you at all.
