Seekers Wanted

As a child, I often played hide-n-seek.
Hide-n-seek was a favourite game to play with our own children, especially in holiday homes, with so many fun places to hide.
Turning the lights off at night and hiding in the dark was always a riot.
Remember counting to 10, then shouting β€œHere I come, ready or not!?”
π’πžπžπ€π’π§π  to find someone in the dark with a torch light was such fun!
The word 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀 means to go in search of, try to discover, try to acquire, with energy, direction, passion, and purpose. And that was always the case with hide-n-seek!
π’πžπžπ€π’π§π  implies so much more than merely looking.
π’πžπžπ€π’π§π  is always more of a journey, than any single event.
And on any journey, there are always many peaks and valleys.
I encounter many in the world looking for answers to the question that Jesus asked in the New Testament, β€œWhat 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀 ye?” – John 1:38
How would you answer Jesus’ question?

Are you π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ something?

Money, wealth, a job, success, a good reputation, happiness, security, comfort?
Like many things in life, success, money, security, are fleeting, elusive, often uncertain and anything but guaranteed.
Are you scrambling in the dark?
Where are you π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ with your torchlight in hand?
In their response to Jesus, the disciples responded by saying they were not π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ something, but rather 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐨𝐧𝐞.
They were π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ the Messiah.
The disciples weren’t the only 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀𝐞𝐫𝐬 that day.
Jesus Christ too, was and is a 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀𝐞𝐫.
He too is looking for disciples to follow Him, two millennia ago and today.
Real happiness does not come from π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ things; it comes from π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ Jesus.
As you 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀 for Jesus Christ, you’ll recognise too, that He is π’”π’†π’†π’Œπ’Šπ’π’ˆ you.
His light is far more powerful than your torchlight.
Daily, honest 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀𝐞𝐫𝐬 of truth find an answer to the question, β€œWhat 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀 ye” through missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
And you can too.
What 𝐬𝐞𝐞𝐀 ye?
