“. . .seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:8

A familiar verse, Jesus imparts an important, essential message about the nature of God. That is, God’s presence surrounds us but in order to unlock the door to a deeper relationship, we need to respond. Notice the action orientation of these words: seek, find, knock, open.  No force is employed, only a prompting to act.
