Knock Knock

As a break off of a podcast that I recently listened to from Rob Bell, I explore further.
Sharla’s business with Creative Memories is exciting in many ways. One of the odd but exciting parts of the business is that we get boxes delivered to us on many ocassions. I enjoy the sound of a truck stopping out in front of the house, a knock on the door, a delivery of lots of boxes. We have even taken a picture of the bountiful bunch of boxes. Used to, the brown truck would stop and wait for an answer, now we get the rumble of the truck, a knock and a truck taking off.
It seems like most of us in our response to Matthew 7:8

8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

The last part talking about knockething – how long do you have to knock? Is it knock, door opens, or is it knock, knock…..knock,knock.

When you knock on someone’s door, how long do you wait? What if you know that they are there? Do you knock, ring the bell, call their name, look in the window, call on the phone? We usually are persistant in our knocking and getting the door answered.

When it comes to knocking on God’s door, how long do you wait? Knock, oh well no answer. How long do you wait? You know He’s there, why not the persistence that we have at a friends house.

What if it is raining, snowing, cold, hot on the outside of the door? Are you more apt to leave quickly?

He said that He would answer. Stick it out. He’s on the way to the door. He’s excited to see you. Many times He gets to the door only to hear the sound of you speeding away.

Knock, Knock
