KNOCK, KNOCK . . . WHO’S THERE?

WHEN DID YOU LAST PLAY THE CHILD’S GAME OF KNOCK KNOCK? MY YOUNG GRANDSONS ENJOY THE JOKES AND I MUST ADMIT; I ENJOY THEIR REACTIONS MORE THAN THE KNOCK KNOCK JOKE ITSELF. SOMETIMES THEY TRY TO TELL A KNOCK KNOCK JOKE AND FORGET OR MESS UP THE PUNCH LINE WHICH MAKES IT EVEN FUNNIER!

THERE IS ANOTHER KNOCK KNOCK THAT WE SOMETIMES FORGET. THIS KNOCK IS NOT A JOKE. JESUS TELLS US TWICE IN SCRIPTURE TO KNOCK. PERHAPS, YOU HAVE HEARD OR USE THE PHRASE “A.S.K.” A=ASK, S=SEEK, K=KNOCK. THIS IS TAKEN FROM MATTHEW 7:7; “ASK AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU; SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND; KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL BE OPENED TO YOU.”

WHAT IS THE ‘IT’ THAT WILL BE GIVEN? WHAT WILL YOU FIND? WHAT DOOR WILL BE OPENED?

JESUS ANSWERS CLEARLY IN MATTHEW 7, VERSES 8-12. YOUR PERSISTENT PRAYERS WILL BE HEARD. GOD WILL GIFT THE GREATEST TREASURE TO THOSE WHO ‘ASK, SEEK AND KNOCK’. GOD WILL GIVE YOU HIS LOVING SALVATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

“KNOCK KNOCK.”

“WHO’S THERE?”

“GEEZ.”

“GEEZ WHO?”

“JESUS!”

IS JESUS KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR? UNLOCK YOUR HEART AND LET HIM IN!

“SO I SAY TO YOU: 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 THE ONE WHO KNOCKS, THE DOOR WILL BE OPENED.” LUKE 11:9-10 NIV
