Intentionally Seeking God

The Pearl of Great Value

Matt. 13:45-46-

  • This merchant is an active seeker of the best pearls he could find.  The scripture calls on us to be constantly looking for the best things of God.  It doesn’t say that this merchant had great joy when he found the pearl.  Sometimes Christians aren’t going around on an emotional high, but if we are consistent and constant in our service we are doing what God wants.
  • This merchant recognized the pearl for its value. 
  • The merchant was willing to pay the price.

Let’s be ready to do whatever it takes to be ready for the best God as for us. 

Paul’s Christian Example

Phil. 3:12-17

  • God wasn’t finished with Paul.  Just like the merchant, Paul was always searching for more and for the best from God. 
  • Paul put forth great effort to move forward in his Christian life.   
  • Paul forgot what was behind.
