God Is Seeking Worshippers!

As I sat outside of my cabin at Camp NaCoMe, Bible in hand, I breathed in the smell of frying bacon and gazed toward the eastern horizon. A picturesque sunrise flaunted stunning reds, oranges, and ambers. Wow, I thought. God has really outdone Himself. Opening my Bible, I glanced down at John 4—and saw it for the first time: “The Father is actively seeking . . .” Hmm . . . I knew God loved me. He had forgiven me, saved me, healed me, and called me into ministry. But seeking me? Suddenly, I “got it.” This was one of those “aha” moments you hear about. God is in pursuit, I thought. Of ME! I know what you’re thinking. “Do you mean to tell me that God is actually pursuing me as a worshipper?” Yes. Actively. The Bible tells us that “the eyes of the Lord are always upon [us]” (Deut. 11:12 KJV), and as He watches, His spirit is ever at work, moving, convicting, suggesting, calling. And today, God is calling men and women, boys and girls, from every race and culture. He’s calling the professional and the laborer. He’s calling me—and He’s calling you—to worship Him.
