“I Want More of Jesus”
Zephaniah 2:3 “Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.”
As children of God we must seek, which denotes both a careful enquiry and a constant endeavor, that we may know and do our duty. (1.) We must seek the Lord, seek His favor and grace, address Him upon all occasions, ask of Him what we need, seek Him early, seek Him diligently, and continue seeking Him. (2.) We must seek righteousness. "Seek to God for the performance of His promises to you, and see to it that you abound yet more in duty to Him; seek for the righteousness of Christ to be imputed to you, for the graces of God's Spirit to be implanted in you; hunger and thirst after them." (3.) We must seek meekness. This is a grace they were so well-known for, that they were designated the meek of the land, and yet this they must seek. Those that are ever so good must still strive to be better, those that have ever so much grace must be still praying and laboring for more. Those that excel in any particular grace must still seek to excel yet more in that, because in that most assaults will be made upon them by their enemies, in that most is expected from them by their friends, and in that they are most apt to be themselves secure. I ain’t asking for a little more Jesus, I want more of Jesus every day.
