While our pursuit of Jesus is a spiritual one Scripture gives clear examples of those who sought His physical presence for blessings in the physical realm.
The hemorrhaging woman in Luke 8:43f was one who pushed through the throngs of people to get to Jesus. The blind beggar in Luke 18:35-43 refused to stay silent. He would not allow Jesus to pass him without contact as he cried out for mercy. Both of these needy people received what they asked for.
It is not always easy to actively pursue Jesus but it is rewarding as we see new facets of Him that we do not discern on a carnal pursuit.
Let us intentionally pursue Him and we will see Him respond in amazing ways bringing peace to troubling situations and providing power for our lives and outreach to those he puts in our paths.
