“Seek The Lord” | September 1, 2016
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Bro Stef Thoughts:
The word in this scripture that stands out to me is”rewarder.” The original word used is “renumerator.” The meaning is to calculate, add up, keep track of and giving rewards in keeping with his values. This word in Greek, misthapodotés, is only used in the Bible once and its in this scripture! We can thus make the assumption that God wants us to think this through very carefully.
There seems to be two prerequisites that must be observed for God to reward us:
1. Believe He is.
2. Seek Him with diligence.
