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.
