Strongest pursuing match ever: how to pursue Christ rather than someoneelse

This is where it all begins. First pursuit of happiness. Then the pursuit of love. Lastly the pursuit of peace. 

Lusting after people is not biblical at all!
Deuteronomy 28:45 NLT
[45] "If you refuse to listen to the LORD your God and to obey the commands and decrees he has given you, all these curses will pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed.
Psalm 23:6 NLT
[6] Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalm 35:3 NLT
[3] Lift up your spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Let me hear you say, "I will give you victory!"
Psalm 119:32 NLT
[32] I will pursue your commands, for you expand my understanding.
Proverbs 15:9 NLT
[9] The LORD detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue godliness.
Proverbs 21:21 NLT
[21] Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor.
Lamentations 5:5 NLT
[5] Those who pursue us are at our heels; we are exhausted but are given no rest.
1 Timothy 6:11 NLT
[11] But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.
2 Timothy 2:22 NLT
[22] Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.

Hope that helps! 

With you in the love and grace of Jesus,
