The People God is Looking For

Sunday, October 30, 2016
 
2 Chronicles 16:9 ~ “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.”
 
God chooses to use people!
What kind of people
 
A Holy People
 
Hebrews 12:14 ~ “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:”
 
Psalms 24:3-5 ~ “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”
 
A Loving People
 
1 John 4:7-10 ~ “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
 
A Persistent People
 
2 Corinthians 4:7-9 ~ “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;”
 
A Believing People
 
Hebrews 11:6 ~ “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
 
A Foresighted People
 
Colossians 3:2 ~ “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
 
Hebrews 12:1 ~ “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”
 
Hebrews 12:2 ~ “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
 
A Surrendered People
 
Psalms 51:17 ~ “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”
 
 
God is looking for people who are holy, loving, persistent, believing, foresighted, and surrendered. Are you one of the people God is looking for?
