Have You Found God?

Devotional6-Have You Found GodHave you found God?—then you have life. Let us then seek, in order that we may live. The reward of seeking is life with God. “Let all who seek You be glad and rejoice in You; and let them say continually, God be magnified.”-St Clement of Alexandria

The great Clement of Alexandria proposes a question that ought to strike at the very core of any believer; have you found God? The significance of this question is profound, since the answer reveals to you, dear reader, whether you have truly accepted Christ’s invitation to eternal life. Simply put, if you have found God, then you have eternal life.

Have you found God? Does God have a place in the life He has granted you? Is He manifest in your thoughts, actions and in your every word? Or is the Lord your God housed in a passing thought or honoured occasionally at a church service?

What do these questions reveal to you about your relationship with the Lord God? Have you found God? Or have you lost sight of God through the chaos of this frantic and busy world?

All who have lost sight of God are reminded that apart from God, there is no life. Man was granted life when God breathed His life giving breath into him, and apart from our life giver, we simply cannot live. [1] We ought to therefore search for God and to seek Him wholeheartedly, as Saint Clement teaches, in order that our souls may live. [2]

The search for God is a lifelong journey and the faithful is instructed to busy himself about his own salvation. [3] Fortunately, we have the assurance that God will never desert us, but will rather work in us to bring us back to Him who is our life source. For this very reason we ought to:

‘Be glad and rejoice, because all those who seek the Lord will never be neglected.’-St Clement of Alexandria
