The More We Seek You – Song

new-song

This song has been on my heart

The More I Seek You

The More I Find You

The More I Find You

The More I Love You

 

I Want to Sit at Your Feet

Drink From the Cup in Your Hand

Lay back Against You and Breathe

Feel your Heart Beat

 

This Love is So Deep

It’s More Than I Can Stand

It’s Overwhelming

I Melt in Your Peace

Not trying to be over critical because this song is beautiful but it seems to me that this is a little self-centered song for a group of Christians to sing together. The word I or me is in every verse but what if this song were modified to be sung by a group of Christians?

The More We Seek You

The More We Find You

The More We Find You

The More You Tranform Us

 

We Want To Gaze at your Face

And Be Transformed From Within

We will Bear Your Image From

Glory to Glory

 

Your Love is So Vast

It’s All that We Can Know

We Melt in Your Peace

It’s Overwhelming

 

Deut 4:29 but if from thence you shall seek the Lord your God, you shall find Him, if you seek him with all your heart and soul.

A Lifetime of Seeing Christ

seeking Jesus

We can know about Jesus Christ, we can believe in Jesus Christ but I am convinced that the most important thing that can happen to us spiritually is to see Jesus Christ in a spiritual way.

We know about Jesus Christ and believe in Jesus Christ with our mind and intellect which are natural fleshly abilities.

But seeing Jesus Christ is a thing of the heart. When Peter confessed to Jesus that he is the Christ, the son of God, Jesus responded “blessed are you, flesh and blood did not reveal this to you but my father in heaven” (paraphrased).

“And I will say this, brethren, you do not know anything about the Church if you have not seen Jesus Christ —however much you have read and talked about it, if you have not seen Him, (and he is a lifetime of seeing) you do not know what the Church is. It is not a ‘thing’, an ‘it’. But if you have seen Him, it is a Him, it is a Person Who is dwelling in personsthat is the Church” – T. Austin Sparks

“A lifetime of seeing Jesus Christ” this is the life of a Christian gripped with fascination by their Lord. And then together in groups we reflect Jesus Christ into our towns and cities and nations, this is the ministry of the church.  If we can spiritually see him as he is, we will be conformed to him. It is not a matter of much study or earning our way to him or achieving some enlightenment. Seeing Jesus Christ in the Spirit first takes an act of God himself.

He reveals himself to human hearts, and as we see him more and more the veil between he and us is removed. Seeing Christ becomes a progressive act that does not occur during sermons or through worship songs in and of themselves.  It happens to the person who has an inner walk with the Lord, a person who is responding to him, a person who is seeking the Lord with all of their heart and to a people who do all of this with other believers.

Can you see him today? He looks like the horizon lighting up after a long cold night?

…and God said ‘Let There Be Light’

Unity After the Election?

Directly after the election of Donald Trump on November 9th, Trump, Hillary and Obama all called for unity among Americans.  That surprised me coming even from Obama, he seems to really be divisive. But I think there is something much deeper going on and is originating within the church. As long as Christians are supremely distracted […]
