WHY DO MEN SEEK GOD?

TEXT: JOHN 6:24-27
“Once the crowd realised that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum in search of Jesus. When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the son of Man will give you (John 6: 24-27).
People seek God for different reasons; some seek Him because He is the only sovereign God, full of wonders. They want to know Him daily because He is a unique God that created all things but was not created by anybody. They want to know God so that they can fulfil the purpose of their creation (to fellowship and to serve Him).
There are some people that are seeking God because of the blessing that they want from Him, some seek Him because they want a change in their situation, they follow God because of material needs, and once these needs are met; they stop seeking God. These categories of seekers are not seeking God because God loves them and they want to reciprocate His love, they are not keen to know Him and follow His ways.
Jesus told the crowd that they should not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life.” (John 6:27).

Never seek God because of material things because they are perishable and momentary. Seek God with all your heart, walk in His ways and do His will, so that you can inherit eternal life and inherit the imperishable crown. The scripture tells us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). Seek God genuinely and He will add to you the blessings of His kingdom. When you seek and find God, He will find the bearing of your life for you!
