But—When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7 NLT)
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13 NIV)

My six and seven-year-old daughters are currently “discovering” bugs in the backyard with their dad. While the majority of bugs they’ve come across today are all bugs they’ve picked up before, they set out on this adventure with the expectation of new discovery. Even though it’s all been familiar, new discovery is what they have found.  
That’s kind of how I felt when I read this scripture during a study on leadership in Titus. It’s the message that so much of the Bible tells us, but I’d never read this specific passage. It is familiar, but it is new!  
Can you imagine what would happen if we searched for a new discovery every time we opened the Word of God? Wow! We serve a God with immeasurable knowledge and I truly believe He wants to share with us more than we can even comprehend. Set out on a journey to discover something new with God today. Seek with your whole heart, and you’re going to find what you’re looking for.
