"...There is none who seeks for God… There is not even one."

- Roman 3:11, 12

The age of self is upon us. People want the right to protect, the right to change history, the right to dishonor their own country, the right to be divisive, the right to demand their own way, the right to sin, the right to flaunt their sin and the right to live as if they answer to no one. But where is the one who wants the right to seek God and glorify Him? Man on his own would never seek after God. No not one! It was Jesus who came “to seek and to save that which was lost.” It is the gospel of Jesus Christ that draws a sinner to Him. There would not be one who would deny himself and become a follower of Christ if left on his own. No not one! Paul wrote, “For they all seek after their own interests, not those of Christ Jesus.” But Christ did not come to call the righteous but sinners, and He is still calling today. There is still “more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents, than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” The world has always been sinful, but Christ is still seeking the sinner that he might be saved. Be encouraged!
