To Know and Follow Hard After You

on July 7, 2011

 

 

There’s a Christian song with a lyric “to know and follow hard after you” that I can’t seem to get out of my head this morning.  Isn’t that the goal of every Christian?  We long to know God and to spend our energies following hard after Him. 

 

What do you do to follow hard after Him?  Do you seek Him in prayer?  Do you look for Him in His Word?  Do you talk about Him with other believers?  Do you witness His beauty all around us in nature? 

 

Keeping God on the top of your mind is important.  It’s how we ensure He is first and foremost in our life.  How often do you think of Him?  How often do you speak with Him?  How often do you listen to what He’s saying to you? 

 

Lord, thank you for being with us always and for never leaving us.  Thank you for coming to live in us.  Help us keep you top priority in our minds, to think on the things that are true, lovely, excellent and pure.  You, Lord, are worthy of all praise.  In Jesus name, Amen.
