Searching for the Cat

“To speak of man’s search for God is like speaking of the mouse’s search for the cat.” – C.S. Lewis

I take great comfort in knowing that I am not involved in the work of ministry alone.  It is not about the programs, facility and resources we have to do ministry. It is all about what God is doing. God is seeking all humankind and desperately wants a relationship with all.  It’s the relationship we were all created for. My role isn’t necessarily to convince people to search for God, but to help them realize that God is seeking them out of a deep, unconditional love.
