"The Adventure of a Lifetime"

Remember the famous Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom movie sequence where Indiana is in the “doll’s” (better known as Willie Scott) bed chamber looking for a way to an underground tunnel.  She was convinced that he was looking for her, but to her unbelief he just kept ignoring her to see where the breeze in the room was coming from.  When he found that source, he could find the way to the tunnel he was seeking.  The “doll” gave it her best effort though, and she kept saying, “I’m right here!”  His eyes were not looking for what she was offering though, and it wasn’t long before he found his way to the tunnel.  Here are some things to think about when thinking about Indiana.  First, he was an archaeologist, so he knew his history and he studied “signs” to see where the object was he was searching for.  Secondly, when his interest spiked, he would do whatever it took to find the object of his search.  Thirdly, he never let “distractions” keep him from finishing his search.  And lastly, and most importantly, he was totally committed to the search.  End result:  He found what he was looking for….cha-ching!!  No matter what things got in his way, like the “doll”, he never gave up!! In scripture Jesus tells all who will hear that IF we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then everything else will fall into place and we will find what we are looking for.  The question is; what are you looking for?  Are you looking for peace?   You will find it in Christ.  Are you looking for direction for your life?  You will find it in Christ.  Are you looking for a way to go to  heaven?  You will find it in Christ.  Are you looking for the long lost meaning of life?  You will find it in Christ.  To go out without the map to look for any of these things, plus many others, will be like shooting in the dark.  Your search will cause you to come up empty handed and frustrated.  Also, if you choose other avenues besides Christ you will come up very short and incomplete at best.  You might find peace in a self help book or teaching,  but that will end.  You might find some direction to get you moving, but if that direction isn’t centered on Christ, then you will find yourself dissatisfied at best with your search.  You might look to other religions (or no religion) to find a way to heaven, but all will fall short of you reaching your goal.  You might dig up some old theory from a past philosopher and think you have found the meaning of life, but the definition is all wrong.  There are many different things that get in the way of PURE PERFECT TRUTH, and they all say, “I’m right here!”  Problem is they are all wrong.  Of course, for me to state this Biblical Statement of the perfection of God’s Plan as being the only way will be tough for some to hear, but…….it’s true.  To take one statement from The Waterboy, “That’s some high quality H2O!”  Waterboy was making that statement about the purest source of water he could find and it revived him.  In this mega media world we live in, there are answers to everything you could search for…..Duh  Google!  It doesn’t mean those answers are correct!  You must search in the right place to find what you are looking for and Jesus says all these answers are found in Him.  Now that’s some High Quality H2O that quenches your thirst forever!! Read John 4:14

So, what’s it going to be?  Are you going to continue to accept the substitutes of the world that says, “I’m right here!”  Or will you tap into the pure source of all of this and more, Jesus Christ?  It’s your choice and you need to make it, because life is going to get more complicated if you don’t!!  The thing that drew Indiana into the “doll’s” room was the presence of a breeze indicating that the entrance to the tunnel was near.  He just followed the breeze to the source of it.  John 3:8 says, “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going, so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”  Can you feel the breeze?  Is it drawing you to God?  If so, when you seek Him He will say, “I’m right here!” and much different than the “doll”, He will be what you are looking for.  So, get your adventure hat on and set sail on the biggest and best adventure of your life, SEEKING GOD!  You won’t be disappointed with what you will find…Matthew 6:33 – But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you The Pilgrimage continues….
