A seeker is someone looking for something. A spiritual seeker is someone who is looking for Truth. To be a seeker in the spiritual realm is to seriously consider-or reconsider-what God means to you. Most of us are seekers. Being a Shadowlander and being a seeker go hand in hand.
Maybe the success you’ve enjoyed in your life isn’t as satisfying as you thought it would be. Maybe the fun is starting to feel routine. Maybe things you used to deal with are starting to deal with you. Maybe you just want your “good” life to be good at a deeper, more meaningful level. Whatever the case, if you’re trying to discover ultimate Truth, you’re a “seeker”. Do you qualify? I do.
As seekers, it is important to be open to the possibility that God might be real and able to make a definite difference in our lives. If you are looking for something more, you have to stop pretending to have it all together. That makes sense doesn’t it? I mean why look for something more if you already have it all together? So you know that you don’t know-but you know that you want to know. That is the essence of a seeker. Those who are content do not seek.
Maybe you have tried other religions and still find something missing. Maybe they didn’t work because you are looking for a religion that is based upon relationship instead of works or ritual or formula. Have you tried Christ?
“Yes, I tried Christianity before and it didn’t work either”. That’s not what I asked. Have you tried Christ? “What’s the difference?” Lots. How? Jesus is serious about us whereas “Christianity” often displays itself as you being serious about God. Jesus is all about grace. Without grace Christianity can look a lot like every other religion. If what you tried was a list of do’s and don’t’s that you had to follow to be a “good Christian” no wonder it “didn’t work”. That kind of Christianity focuses on you not on God no matter how good our motives. Without grace rules, regulations, and rituals will always fail because your ‘baggage’ will get in the way. Try Jesus and you’ll get grace and grace never disappoints.
What is grace? Grace is simply God’s unmerited favor, in other words, grace is being loved by God because of Who He is not who we are. Grace is God sending His Son Jesus to be sin for us because to love is His nature. Grace is amazing! I live by grace. Set your sights on grace.
Jesus said “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.” John 14:6 (NASB). I understand that these words sound very exclusionary. But here is the Good News-anyone (yes, anyone) can choose to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Maybe I just jumped way too far ahead for many seekers. You have way too many questions that need to be answered before you are willing to make such a commitment. I understand. I just want you to know that there is another seeker willing to listen, answer questions, and help you find what you are seeking. I’m a seeker and a Shadowlander who God has touched with his amazing grace. I’m no better than you but God’s grace is the most significant event in my life and I would love to share that grace with you. God loves you and so do I.
