                     NOTES FROM PASTOR STEVE:    

  Who's that knocking at the door?
 
A knock at the door means somebody wants to come in.  Maybe it is an expected friend or family member.  We rush to the door to welcome them in.  Other times it may be a sales person.  We may be tempted to hide or just sit quietly until they give up and go away.  Sometimes we are the ones knocking.  We are the ones on the outside wanting to come in.

In the Bible, Jesus invited us to knock at the door.  He encourages us to come seeking.  He invites us to ask of Him.

Jesus' words are recorded in Matthew 7:7-8:

       Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
       knock and the door will be opened to you.
       For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds;
       and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.


Jesus promises a reward to those who seek Him.  We are promised a blessing when we ask of him - when we knock at the door.  He will open the door to us!

This is a great invitation.  This is an amazing promise.

When we come to church this ought to be our attitude.  When we sit down to pray or read God's Word we come seeking to learn from Him, knocking at the door.  We want to come in!

Join us Sunday for Bible Study and worship.  We will ask of the Lord and look forward to Him opening the door and welcoming us in!
