Quotable Quips - Seek Jesus Over All

"God rewards those who seek Him. Not those who seek doctrine or religion or systems or creeds. Many settle for these lesser passions, but the reward goes to those who settle for nothing less than Jesus Himself. And what is the reward? What awaits those who seek Jesus? Nothing short of the heart of Jesus!"

Max Lucato, Senior Minister of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas - as quoted from (January 5, 2007)

When we seek or glorify "doctrine or religion or systems or creeds" rather than Jesus himself, it is idolatry. When we stand before Christ, He won't ask us about these other things before He'll ask us, "Did you know Me?"
