Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7:7-11
Many have said we are currently living in the “information age”, however it seems fewer people today know or follow Jesus Christ. With all the information at our fingertips, with technology, is this an excuse for someone to be ignorant of the gospel? Many people today will also question whether God exists or if Jesus truly risen from the dead, the question is are you seeking God?
Jesus said “Ask and you will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened”, how many people today are truly seeking Christ? How many people are truly in the pursuit for truth? Often those who claim there is no evidence for God’s existence are often people who never even pursued evidence for God’s existence. If you want to know the truth, Jesus said He will reveal it to us, the question is how serious are you in the pursuit for truth? How much do you care about your salvation?
Jesus goes on to say parents typically love to give their kids presents, how much more do you think our Heavenly Father wants to give those who love Christ? When your a parent it seems like there’s a kids birthday party every weekend, parents love to give their kids presents and make them happy. The same is with God, your Heavenly Father wants to give you the greatest gifts, however many don’t care enough about God to pursue him.
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:12
We are all image bearers of God, we were made in his image but yet separated from God due to our sin. God has given us the gift of reconciliation and eternal life through Jesus Christ. God has also given us the gift of the Holy Spirit , who provides us wisdom and understanding beyond human comprehension. Yet despite all God has to offer us, very few are interested in a relationship with their Heavenly Father and Creator
The question is are you seeking the truth? Are you seeking Christ? Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life, nobody can come to the Father God, except through me (Christ) (John 14:6.)Seek Christ and he will answer you, knock on the door Christ and he will open, ask the Lord Jesus into your heart and Christ will make you Born Again, Amen!
