Southwinds E-mail Encourager
The Southwinds E-Mail Encourager is written by John P. Dimarzio who is an elder at the Southwinds church of Christ located in Ft. Wayne Indiana. John was in the class ahead of me at the International School of Evangelism sponsored by the University Drive church of Christ in Pontiac.
Matthew 7:7, 8 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 to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Jesus is giving us mountain moving advice. This monumental counsel is meant for everyday use. It is the solution to all of life’s challenges and woes. First, start the process by asking; an unasked query gets no answer; then begin the search, you will not find what you are not looking for. Finally, pound on the entrance as hard as you want the answer. A simple tapping shows no urgency, and you will not get the attention of your benefactor. Better to ask, seek and knock than whine, pout, and complain. Your choice, listen to Jesus or live your life in an eternal unsatisfied wanting mode.
