God Came to Find Us by Pastor Melissa Scott

God had moved out of the eternal and invisible realm, and the Word, that was facing God and was of the same nature as God, dwelt, tented is the meaning of the Greek word: struck a tent in human flesh and moved into a package of flesh called Jesus of Nazareth. (John 1:1-14)

And there was God in a Person on the stage of history. If you wanted to know what God was like, there He was. And when He passed by, they went with Him. That was the good news being proclaimed. Onto the stage of history, a child would come: “Emmanuel” would be His name, “which being interpreted is, God with us.”

Pastor Melissa Scott goes on to say, Dr. Scott told me that he heard Canon Bryan Green at Stanford University once describe some people’s religious search. He said they are like a little child who quit playing hide-and-seek because it was “all seek and no find.” He said that is the way some people seek after God. They are forever looking in the wrong place. God came to find us.
