Our souls were designed to seek Jesus. Inherent in our very nature is a need for relationship, for empathy, and for love. Jesus does not leave us alone to stumble through the darkness. He takes the initiative and seeks us out. "Come away," He whispers, "and sit at My feet.”

Too often, we become complacent in our walk with Jesus. Our love for Jesus withers, and the embers of our zeal grow cold. We settle for a comfortable level of Christianity, preferring comfort to courage and familiar territory to unknown ground. Satisfied, we neglect to seek Him.

Yet Jesus is calling us to seek Him. There are heights of joy and depths of peace that we have not known! There are precious truths we have not yet grasped. We can have a much deeper, more precious relationship with Jesus than we do today.

Join us in seeking Jesus, and discover the joy of His presence!

Review Text

  • By Theron St. John on July 31, 2017

    The cry of many parents’ hearts ring, “I just want my children to be happy.” Sadly, this statement is made sometimes when the child has gone wayward in their walk of life. The child has decided happiness is found seeking to be sovereign, not in surrendering your will to another. But, just as the parable found in Luke 15, such a life leaves one empty. The way to find joy in this life and in the next is not by seeking to be sovereign but by surrendering your life in seeking the One who is sovereign. This new book by Jason Homan and Claudine Broussard aims to do just that.In Seeking Jesus, co-authors Jason Homan and Claudine Broussard take the first three chapters to lay the foundation. In chapter 1, they take us through the testimony of Scripture to see God has sought us first. As those who have been sought, we now ought to prepare our hearts to seek Him (chapters 2–3). When we have prepared our hearts for seeking Christ, we then put into practice through the disciplines of Bible Study (chapter 5), Scripture memory (chapter 6), and meditation (chapter 7). Seeking Jesus this way changes us both outside and inside (chapters 8–9). It is an everyday pursuit (chapter 10), looking to Him for guidance (chapter 11) while persevering through it all (chapter 12). The result of seeking Jesus is not a surrender of drudgery, but of joy (chapter 13).Seeking Jesus: Stepping into a Life of Bold Surrender, Freedom, and Deep Joy is a Scripture-saturated resource bound to set your heart on seeking Jesus for joy in life. It is worth noting, for people like me who may use a different translation, the authors of the book use the King James Version when they cite Scripture passages. Nevertheless, the earlier chapters seem to be the strongest in the book and provide readers with a proper biblical view of the gospel. Homan and Broussard connect the truth God has sought us with the hunger we have in seeking joy, which is found only in Christ. They show us the proper response to Jesus Christ is repentance of sin and faith in Him and His work (see chapters 1–2).This book does not come without critique, however. One seems pertinent. Throughout the book, various elements are introduced. Many chapters feature “Seeking Him” in the title, but chapters 8 and 9 depart from the pattern and could somewhat feel out of place. In chapters 2, 4, and 10 we get to read “From Claudine”, which involves a story from the life of Claudine Broussard in relation to the subject of the chapter. In chapters 3 and 4, the chapter ends with “Baby Steps”, encouraging the reader to put into practice what they’ve read. A more consistent structure would have benefited the authors’ audience, particularly sharing the “From Claudine” sections with greater regularity which aptly painted a picture of what seeking Jesus looks like applied in daily life.With commendations put forth and critiques put aside, Seeking Jesus by Jason Homan and Claudine Broussard will stir one’s affections for seeking Jesus through the Word that reveals Him.I received a digital copy of this book for free in exchange for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own and are my honest review of the book.
