Opening the Scriptures Bringing the Gospel of Matthew to Life: Insight and Inspiration



"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." - Matthew 7:7

Asking, seeking, and knocking are three imperatives Jesus gave his disciples, and us, in order to grow fully in our Faith and be true disciples of Jesus. Scripture reading and study is an important part of that path to discipleship, and offers us opportunities…

  • to ask - for clarity
  • to seek - the truths of the Bible
  • to knock - asking Christ to come into our hearts.
