Ask

Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount”, in Matthew 5-7, was His first public message. It was then that Jesus told the crowd, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.” He wasn’t saying that prayer and blessing are a game of cosmic hide and seek. He was assuring us that God hears His children and He isn’t hiding or withholding from us. But He is waiting on something: for us to ask.

Jesus declared that the God of the universe wants to give us good things. That truth is incredible. Our Heavenly Father is eager to provide. Like good earthly fathers, God won’t give His children a bad gift. So, this Easter, who are you asking Him to save?

Is there anyone in your life who you’ve given up on, thinking that they’re never going to get saved? Ask God to move in their lives and hearts, and then invite them. Be expectant for God to do big things. God is a good father who wants what is best for us. Begin thinking about your family and friends, anyone you know who is far from God. Ask Him to save them this Easter.

Reflect:

  • Do you believe God is a good father?
  • Who are you asking God to save this Easter?
  • When can you invite them to a Newspring Easter service?
