from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

What Is A Seeker?

Let me start out by saying it is not my intent here to put down any church’s style or method. This writing will either reveal my ignorance or pose some questions for pondering. While the trend of “seeker sensitive” churches seems to be past it’s peak, the idea has far from vanished. In fact, what we see with many churches today is somewhat of an evolvement of seeker sensitive.

The word “seeker” is defined as one who is trying to locate or discover. This type person is well beyond the target of most seeker friendly churches. Programs that purposely avoid liturgy and anything with a church-y or religious feel, including the music, are actually focusing on the pre-seeker rather than a true seeker. A true seeker of God wants to learn about the things of God, ceremonial, traditional, or not. A true seeker of God is not offended by the word sin, but rather convicted.

Throughout scripture, (Deut. 4:29, Jer. 29:13, Lk 11:9 to name a few) we are told we will find God when we seek Him with all our heart. When a true seeker enters the doors of our church, we need to make sure he finds God and not the world there.
