Ask, Seek, and Knock

God\'s New Humanity

Jesus promised, "Ask and it will be given unto you." What do you think when you hear that? Many think this means God is my personal cosmic genie, ready to make all my wishes come true. What if Jesus is doing something totally different and more beautiful than that? Jesus is making a guarantee to give his children the greatest gift that he possibly could... himself.

Scripture References: Matthew 7:7-12

Either this is the bold move of a narcissistic megalomaniac or this is the beginning of a subversive movement of grace that would change the course of history forever. Let's take a closer look at the most famous sermon of all time and see how Jesus inaugurated God's new humanity.
