"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
At this time of the year, many people decorate their yards and their houses with Christmas decorations. We put up trees, lights, and lots of shiny stuff. One of my favorite Christmas decorations is the Nativity scene. I love seeing Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the animals, and of course, baby Jesus. At times I find myself searching for Jesus in the Nativity scenes from house to house. It reminds me of what the Bible says about searching for Jesus. Jeremiah 29:13 says, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." In Deuteronomy 4:29, Moses said, "But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul." In other words, the ONLY WAY to truly find Jesus is WITH YOUR HEART. Don't let the Christmas season go by without truly searching for and worshiping Jesus WITH YOUR HEART. Don't get so caught up in the trees, the lights, the gifts, the family, and the friends that you miss Jesus. Christmas is all about Jesus. Let's keep it that way.
