“Enter by the narrow gate.”        Matthew 7:13-14

Chris Blake’s book, “Swimming Against the Current,” I think appropriately describes today’s command from Jesus. If I pick the popular way, or the convenient way, or the selfish way, I’m probably going to struggle through life, ESPECIALLY if at the same time I am trying to retain my commitment to Jesus and my desire to follow Him all the way to the Kingdom—and beyond!

“Do unto others as you would have them do to you.”     Matthew7:12

“Ask, seek, and knock.”                Matthew 7:7,8

It appears to take some intentionality in this journey with Jesus to His kingdom. I can’t just sit back and passively “let it happen.” Jesus commands me to do three things in today’s passage:

Ask
Seek
Knock

And IF I do:

It WILL be given me
I WILL find
It WILL be opened for me

First of all, I JUST learned yesterday afternoon that none of you students were receiving GMU while I was gone. There was a little glitch in the system that delivered my morning musings to everyone else on the list EXCEPT the students. I apologize for this oversight. I don’t want to overburden your email systems so I will NOT send you all the back ones you missed (unless you would like them!

From a dear friend and faithful off-campus GMU reader, I want to share her response to yesterday’s GMU about judging. It’s such a huge subject that I know I didn’t cover the whole topic. I really liked this journey with the word so here it is for today’s GMU

“Don’t judge; it might just come back to haunt you.”       Matthew 7:1

Easy to say; hard to do. I watch what I believe is a continual misuse of this text as people attempt to defend their behavior. I don’t think it is “judging,” as I see the meaning of this verse, if I tell someone it’s wrong to kill their neighbor. It’s judging if I draw conclusions about WHY that person might kill their neighbor and then act on my assumption in how I treat and respond to that person.

“Be careful that your acts of righteousness are done to be seen by God and not by men.”            Matthew 6:1

It appears to be so much about motive! Jesus give three illustrations as He explains the importance of DOING, but doing for the right reason.
