Asking for Our Needs

Asking for Our Needs Matthew 7:7-12 Main Point: Our Heavenly Father will give good gifts for our needs when we seek Him in faith, so that we can also bless others! Gifts = not deserved, but from His grace. James 2:2-3 “… you do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” 1. Father God loves us, wants to meet our needs and give us good gifts – but we must ask, seek and knock! verses 7-8 *Ask – Assumes we know correctly what our needs are. *Seek – Inquiring, looking carefully Knock – To rap vigorously,energetically, adamantly. 2. Verses 9-10 An analogy from good human parents! 3. Verses 11 > 12 The way that God blesses us, is the way we, in turn, are to bless others! Verse 12 In so doing, we Fulfill the Law and the Prophets – the whole intent of God’s law towards each other!
