Open your Bible now to the tenth chapter of the gospel of Mark...the gospel of Mark, Mark, who tells the story of Christ along with Matthew and Luke and John has written this great history that we have been enjoying now for well over a year. We find ourselves in chapter 10. I've entitled this particular event "The Tragedy of a Selfish Seeker," The Tragedy of a Selfish Seeker.
We hear a lot today in the contemporary evangelical church about seekers. We even have ministry define for us as seeker-driven and needing to be seeker friendly. We might assume from that that the world is full of seekers and that we just need to find out the angle of what they're seeking and provide it somehow for them and that will draw them to salvation.
The truth of the matter is, the world is full of seekers, they're not seeking God. Fulfillment? Sure. Purpose? Right. Happiness? Absolutely. Love? For sure. Meaning? Of course. God? Not really. Romans 3, the Bible says, "No man seeks after God."...
