Finding Him vs He has found you already

Even when the apostles of the New Testament exhort you to love your neighbor, to pursue gentleness, and to refrain from debauchery ... that's awesome, but that's not a way to find God, to please God, or to satisfy God, because God is not found, pleased, or satisfied with the work of your hands.

He is satisfied already.  
He is pleased already. 
He has found you already... In Jesus.

God is never found in what you do.  God is found in what Jesus has done for you with His birth, His life, His suffering and death, with His glorious resurrection and ascension, and with the current preaching of who He is and what He has done.

"he shall see the fruit of the travail of his soul and be satisfied"
It doesn't matter what you see, but what He sees.
