God is passionately pursuing you. There is a notion in our world that we must find God, that it is on our shoulders to search for a hidden God. If God had not or does not reveal himself, we would not even know that there is a God. He is self-revealing and on a mission to provoke a response in us. He pursues us in three fundamental ways.
First, the act of creation itself is an incredible act of pursuit by God. He is the Creator-Artist, with his masterpiece in mind, and we are part of the tapestry of creation.
Second, the act of inspiring a book, the Bible, to codify his message demonstrates God as divine author pursuing us through his written Word.
Finally, the act of the incarnation is the crowning act of pursuit. Christ, the incarnate Son of God, is on a mission to rescue the love of his heart. It is the perfect fixing the broken, the highest becoming the lowest, the resurrected lifting the dying from the very grave.
God’s pursuit of us takes place on his dance floor, his universe, his masterpiece. His pursuit unfolds throughout history on our battlefields, in our crucibles, and through our worst trials. He brings the scars of his crucible—the cross—into our crucibles and rescues us. In responding to our pursuing God we find our greatest healing.
