Put Your Capp on. “A” For Ask!

Matthew 7 “7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”

But how do you ask? What do we ask for when we’ve been blessed with and have been given all?

Ephesians 1 “3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”

2 Peter 1 “3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”

I believe the difference between asking before the cross and asking after the cross is shown in the Greek word for “ASK!”

Ask-ahee-teh'-o;to ask (in general): —ask, call for, crave, desire, require.

Before the cross we ask, petition, and crave for what we don’t have.

After the cross we “CALL FOR!”

In John 1:12 Jesus tells us that to those who receive Him is given power, authority and the right to be a son of God! Jesus demonstrated how a son acts. Jesus knew the will of the Father and so He never asked the Father to do, JESUS ALWAYS SIMPLY SPOKE TO THINGS! He called for what He desired! The only times He asked the Father to do something was 1) To keep the disciples. And. 2) If possible to remove the cup of the cross.

Jesus simply called for a fever to leave, a man to get up and walk, demons to leave, fish to swim and fill a net, Lazarus to come, the storm to still, eyes to open etc.

So, before the cross asking is now after the cross “CALL FOR!”

I love you all very much!(NLM)
