Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs continued in the Sermon on the Mount series focusing on prayer. Throughout his life, Jesus taught about prayer many times. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus preached about prayer through three words: Ask, seek, and knock. Asking God is only part of prayer. Sometimes it is what brings us to God, to request, even to plead, that God’s will aligns with our heart’s desire. Seeking is actively looking to God’s character and righteousness with hopes of aligning our will with God’s heart’s desire. Finally, knocking on heaven’s door is the privilege we have to humbly approach God, knowing that he welcomes us. This passage in Jesus’ sermon reminds us that our God is relational – he is loving, and he is always good. There’s an old saying that goes, “God doesn’t always give us what we want, but he gives us what we need.” When we look for the answer to prayer, we need to look at these three words, ask, seek, and knock. When we understand those three elements of prayer, we will recognize the good gifts that are God’s answer.
