What Do You Seek?

Luke 2:29-30, NIV: "Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
you now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation."
If we were not promised eternityif our only reward was satisfaction in a good
standing with God, and serving mankindif this life was all there waswould you
still seek to follow Christ; loving God and others with all your being? Would it be enough
to see Gods salvation for the world? Jesus said that if you would seek to gain your
life, you would lose it, but if you lose your life for His sake, then you will find it. If
we come to Jesus for our needs and our eternal life alone, we are like so many others who
have done so before. But if after we have been redeemed, we seek to follow Jesus for
personal riches in Glory, then we have lost sight of the Savior we seek
