SEEKING GOD: Do You Really Want To Know God?
Peter Jeffery


SEEKING GOD by Peter Jeffery is one of the most powerful evangelistic tools ever written. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is presented in a simple and clear manner that will leave the reader with no excuse.

Thousands of copies have circled the globe and touched and changed untold lives. Eternity alone will reveal all that the Lord has accomplished through this precious booklet.

"We have used Peter Jeffrey's 'Seeking God' for many years to show unbelievers of all ages how to 'seek the Lord while He may be found'. It has proved most effective in special Sunday School classes, as a popular item on our tract rack with visitors and in believers' personal distribution to their friends. Seeking God shows you how to seek God, cautions you how NOT to seek God and encourages you as to why it all matters. Unlike so much fluff today, this is older, wiser, biblical counsel from a veteran 'obstetrician of souls.'" - Steve Martin, Former Executive Director of ARBCA

"It is refreshing to read a booklet which contains the heart and soul of the gospel. Each page is a gem" - Christian Herald

Do you want to know God? Are you really seeking him? Then let us make it clear from the outset that you will only find God through Jesus Christ. He said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6).

It is not enough, however, for you to say, "I am seeking God." What are your reasons for doing so?

Do not confuse seeking with being curious. The person who is only curious about God and spiritual things will never find the Lord. His search will easily and frequently be diverted to other things. His desire for God soon passes. Curiosity such as this can arise simply because it is in the person's nature to show a casual and temporary interest in various matters. Or it could be that a friend has been genuinely converted, and curiosity is aroused as to what has caused the change in him. This latter cause is often used by the Holy Spirit to produce a genuine seeking.

Intellectual enquiry
There are some people who delight to describe themselves as seekers after truth. Such seeking is not a true seeking after God, but an intellectual exercise that never brings satisfaction. This "seeker" may be genuine, sincere and earnest, but he is never desperate. His need is intellectual, not spiritual; he is seeking not God, but knowledge. We will be showing later that the mind is important in coming to true faith in God. God speaks to a man through the mind and to the heart. The Christian does not despise the intellect, but he recognizes its limitations.

Peace of mind
There are also those who seek God as an answer to their marriage, family or other emotional problems. They turn to God as they would turn to an aspirin when they have a headache. With these people there is no consciousness of personal sin. God is merely a way of escape. What they are looking for is not a Savior but an emotional crutch. One can have more sympathy with these folk than with the curious or intellectual seekers; but still they will not find God, for there is a vast difference between peace of mind and peace with God.

Deep longing
This is the way to seek God. "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13). The person who is truly seeking God is doing so because he has been made aware of the state of his soul. He knows that he is a sinner. Do you object to being called a sinner? The true seeker does not. In the eyes of society he may be considered the height of respectability, but in the sight of God, he knows he is vile and full of sin. So he seeks God not out of curiosity, not because of intellectual interest, nor merely as a remedy for instability, but because of a deep and desperate need for pardon and forgiveness.

The difference between this man and the other three is that he can truly see his problem. He may or may not be curious by nature. He may be an intellectual or quite the opposite. He may have a life full of emotional instability or be devoid of any such problems. But whatever else is true of him, he knows that he is a sinner, and there is a longing in his soul to be right with God. This difference between him and others has nothing to do with temperament, ability or background. It is the emerging evidence of the Holy Spirit working in his life. He is going through a painful experience, but by the grace of God it will lead him to salvation through Jesus Christ.

It is for such a person that this little book is written. The curious seeker will not benefit from it; in all probability he will not read it all the way through, but will lose interest very soon. The intellectual seeker will argue with everything and will find no satisfaction in these pages. To both of these I would say very solemnly that there is no virtue in merely seeking. You will seek your way to hell, unless you see that your real need is to seek a Savior. The "peace-of-mind" seeker could benefit, if he comes to see that his real problem is that he needs a Savior. He must reach the point where he recognizes that even if he had no emotional problems of any kind, he still has a problem of sin, and this problem can only be answered in the Lord Jesus Christ.

For the person who has a deep longing for peace with God, it is my prayer that these pages may be a stepping stone to a living faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

"Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon"
(Isaiah 55:6,7).

The benefits and blessings of being a Christian
"If I become a Christian, I will have to give up many of my pleasures." This sort of thinking is often in the mind of the person seeking God. But the truth is that no one ever gives up anything for God without receiving much more in return. The person who thinks in this way is like a man who has hobbled about with a crippling disease for many years complaining, "If I am healed, I will have to give up my crutches."

Simon Peter once said to Jesus, "We have left everything to follow you!" "I tell you the truth", Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in the present age...and in the age to come, eternal life" (Mark 10:28-30).

This truth is confirmed in the experience of the apostle Paul, as he says in Philippians 3:7,8: "But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ."

Before he was converted, Paul (or Saul of Tarsus, as he was then known) was a young man with enormous prospects. His pedigree was faultless (see Philippians 3:5,6). It is obvious from Acts 7:58 and 9:1,2 that he was already a leader in his own circle. But when he was converted, all this changed, and instead he knew extreme hardship and much danger. Read 2 Corinthians 11:23-28. Many would say, "What a waste!" But that is not what Paul says: he speaks rather of "the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus". What a beautiful phrase that is! You probably cannot understand it at the moment, but if you are really seeking God it may not be too long before this will also be your testimony.

There is nothing to be compared with the joy of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior. The difficulties and problems of the Christian life are very real, but the benefits and blessings far outweigh them.

Consider some of the benefits to the Christian: sins forgiven (1 John 1:9); peace with God (Romans 5:1); a new life (2 Corinthians 5:17); and heaven guaranteed (John 14:1-3). And so we could go on; the list is endless. To become a Christian is the greatest thing that can happen to you.

In the 19th century there was a very famous scientist in Scotland by the name of Sir James Simpson. He made many valuable medical discoveries, among them the use of chloroform as the first anaesthetic. But when asked at a public meeting what his greatest discovery had been, this remarkable man replied without hesitation: "That I have a Savior."

The same man said, "In Christ you will find a Savior, a companion, a counselor, a friend, a brother who loves you with a love greater than the human heart can conceive."
