The Search That Cannot Wait

Behold, now is 'the acceptable time,' behold, now is ‘the day of salvation.'"1

Following the news of ex-Beatle George Harrison's death back on December 1, 2001, anchor Anne Curry of television's TODAY show interviewed Anthony DeCurtis, a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. DeCurtis talked at length about Harrison's search for a meaningful spiritual life. Speaking of the Beatles, Curry said, "Apparently Harrison was the most spiritual of the group; in a recent interview, he said, 'Everything else in life can wait, but the search for God cannot wait.'"2

I don't know whether Harrison ever found God or not. I surely hope he did. I suspect, however, like too many, he may have made the search for God a complicated issue when the easiest way to find God is a simple belief in God’s Word which says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life"3 — and a simple prayer such as, "God, I believe in Jesus. Please be merciful to me a sinner."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank You that I don't have to search to find You because You have already found me, and have revealed Yourself in Your Son, Jesus Christ, and that all I have to do is to confess that I am a sinner, believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on the cross to save me from the penalty of all my sins, and ask for Your forgiveness. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen.”"
