Don't Stop Until You Meet Jesus

[The star] went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. ... They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary .... Matthew 2:9,11 (NLT)

"Where do you find Jesus? The same place the wise men did -- in the ordinary."

The wise men did not stop until they met Jesus. The Bible says they finally came to the place where Jesus was.  Have you done that yet?  Have you come to the point in your life where you've met Jesus personally? 

If you haven't, you are still on the journey. If you haven't met him face-to-face yet, don't stop seeking, keep on going.

A lot of people start off asking the important questions of life: 'Who am I? Where am I?  Where did I come from?  Where am I going? Does my life have meaning?  Is there a purpose?  What is the significance of it all?' 

These are important questions. But if you don't keep seeking the answers, pretty soon you get distracted by other things, even important things, like your career or education. But when people do that, they have trouble getting back on the journey. Many people spend the rest of their lives missing the very purpose they were created for.

Like the wise men, don't stop seeking until you meet Jesus. Where do you find Jesus?  The same place the wise men did -- in the ordinary. You find him in the problems of life, not in the spectacular.  You find him in the stuff of life, in the stalls and the stables where it's smelly and where life is being born.
