Michael Pickford

A quest is a search, a pursuit, or an expedition to find something. Many men have made great quests in the past. Pirates are on a quest for treasure. Warriors are on a quest for victory in battle. Politicians are on a quest for a seat in the office. What is your quest? For the child of God, our quest on earth should be solely to serve and please God. Our quest, our pursuit, our goal should be heaven.

Pirates, soldiers and politicians use every resource possible; they will expend every ounce of energy they have; they will give all of their time; they will make great painful sacrifices to fulfill their quests. How much time do you spend serving God? How much energy do you exert doing good works? How many sacrifices do you make to remain faithful to the Lord? The “do-nothing” religion did not originate in the mind of God. We were “created in Christ Jesus for good works,” and we are to be “zealous for good works” (Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:14.)

I fear that some of the groups of people named above are more zealous for their cause than many Christians are for the cause of Christ. Don’t let them rise up and condemn you in the last day. We’re on a quest! Let’s pursue it with all that we have in us. “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is...” (Col. 3:1).
