I love those who love me,
and those who seek me diligently will find me.
These words of Solomon are even more applicable to the Lord! He doesn’t just love those who love him, but, as John recognises in his first letter, we love because he first loved us (4:19). Indeed God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Rom.5:8). Furthermore, he gives wonderful confidence to those who seek, that he will be found when you search for me with all your heart (Jer.29:13).
What a wonderful God we have!
