True Seeking Faith

Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. {Isa. 55:6-7}

Here is one of the clearest OT invitations to salvation now and kingdom blessing later. It gives a great example of how people were saved during the OT period. Salvation grace and mercy were availiable to the soul that was willing to 1.) seek the Lord, and 2.) call upon Him while He is still availiable {Matt.25:1-13}. Such true seeking faith is accompanied by repentance, which describes the forsaking of  ways and thoughts and turning from sinful living to the Lord. A person must come to God believing in God, recognizing their own sin and desiring forgiveness and deliverance from that sin. At the same time he must recognize their own inability to be righteous apart from God and cast himself on God’s mercy. It is then that he receives a complete pardon. His sin has been covered by the substitution of the Messiah in his place.

Luke 18:9-14 is the NT example: I tell you,” this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who who humbles himself will be exalted.” (v.14)

Dear Christian saint, Don’t be affraid to share your faith today, it may destine someone’s eternity.

May God bless your walk!
