It made me think about God searching for us as Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost. He came to a dangerous place with no thought of his own life. He came as Redeemer, a servant, the sacrifice; he came in apparent weakness and allowed himself to be crucified. What a way to seek and to save!
He came in strength and power. The mighty engine of God’s heart throbs with love and eagerness as he searches out the lost. We are his hands and feet as we help rescue those he loves. Do we as a church have his vitality, his heart of love, to help him in this task? Are we actively searching out those who are in danger?
As God is searching for us, so he wants to find us searching for him, holding up our hands for rescue. Asa, King of Judah, was told by the prophet of God’s searching gaze - ‘For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.’¹
Zophar asked his good friend, Job, ‘Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens – what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave – what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.’² No earthly search engine like Google is powerful enough to probe God’s limits or understand his mysteries. No vast resource of internet knowledge like Wikipedia can tell us everything there is to know about God.
However, God promises that if we search for him with all our hearts, he will be found. What a mystery! God wants to be found by us, and known by us, although we will never fully fathom his mysteries or understand his ways.
Then as we find God we will be like the crew of the search and rescue boat, actively searching, ready for use at any time, alert and available to help our master in his search and rescue operation.
