First Steps – April 15, 2019

Have you ever played the game Hide and Seek? At some point, I bet you have. In the game we want a hiding place so good that no one can find us. But have you noticed that if someone finds a place where they can’t be found, it isn’t long before they do something so that they can be found? Perhaps they move making a sound. Maybe they cough or even jump out and yell, “Coo-eee I’m here!” In the end, we want to be found.

I’m convinced that there are two types of people in the world: Hiders and Seekers. Some hide from others and from God and some don’t. They seek because they want to be found. Just like in the game, we all want to be found. The question is how long do we hide, which often comes at our own expense. The Good News is you don’t have to hide anymore. Be found today.
