Persistence Hunting

What did Andrew have to do to catch the Coati?

  • Chase, and chase, and chase!

If you think of the hunter like a dad, and the Coati as his child, what is one of the best ways for a dad to show his love for his children?

  • By playing chase.
  • By always pursuing his children’s hearts and never giving up, especially when it is difficult.
  • God promises dads that if they hope in Him, He will give them the strength and the joy of pursuit of their wife’s and children’s hearts: “They that hope in the LORD will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’ wings; They will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.” Is 40:31

Does God ever give up His hunt for our hearts?

  • Nope!
  • God never gives up His hunt for our love. He chases us until we are tired of our selfishness and ready to let Him hold us close to His heart.
  • God made dads to never give up the hunt for love either!
