Seek Me and Live Podcast by David Platt for Raical
“For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel. Seek me and live.”
Those four words at the end of Amos 5:4, hide them in your heart. This is the word of God to His people. Seek me and live. Life is found in seeking God. You want to live? You want to experience life to the full? Seek God. It’s exactly what Jesus says. Seek first the kingdom of heaven and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you as well. Seek God. Seek God.
“Your face, Oh Lord, I will seek,” the Psalmist cries. And so God says here in Amos 5, “I want you to have life. I want you to experience life to the full.” But it is not found in seeking possessions. It is not found in seeking praise from men. It is not found in seeking position in this world. It is not found in seeking the pursuits of this world. “Life is found in seeking me,” God says. Rise in the morning and seek God.
