Last Sunday’s sermon was based on the well-known passage of scripture from Matthew 7:7: ‘Seek and you will find’. Stewart shared with us about his passion for nature and in particular fungi.
They don’t just grow anywhere, but rather, certain species will be found in particular environments or on specific trees. Out looking for his favourite, fly agaric, he ventured to Penn Common.
This species of fungi is found on light soils and alongside birch trees. If you want to locate them you have to go to the right place. Heavy soil and oak will disappoint.
Although God can find us anywhere, if we’re searching then we have to look in the right place.
You won’t find Jesus in the Mosque or the Temple, in fact you might not even find him in a Church. It has to be somewhere where the Bible is preached. That man has sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and that’s why Jesus died on the cross.
If a church tells you that you’re a good person and you’ll make it because of that, it’s not what the Bible teaches. We are lost with Christ, only his offer of salvation can save us.
‘I am the way, I am the truth and I am the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6, Jesus speaking.
Looking for God? Look in the right place.
