How Diligently Do We Search For Jesus? Genesis 31

"And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, 'Jacob': and I said, 'Here am I'" (Genesis 31:11).

Was not this the Lord Jesus?

See Genesis 48:15-16.


"And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the two maidservants tents; but he found them not. Then went he out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent" (Genesis 31:33).

Observe the diligence with which Laban sought after his false gods.

Reader! may it provoke you and me to a greater earnestness in seeking for the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom He hath sent.

• How charming Job's desire, Job 33:3.

• How delightful David's earnestness, Psalm 42:1-2.

• How encouraging that promise, Hebrews 11:6.
