ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE (MATHEW 7:7-11)
Bro. John Kurian, Kottayam
This passage, a part of the Sermon on the Mount is often taken to mean that God will answer our requests for material needs like food, clothing, healing etc. While it is true that God will meet our physical needs, in answer to our prayers, there is a deeper spiritual significance to these verses. When we examine the context and the setting of this passage, we are constrained to believe that this passage means much more than that. To understand the real significance of these statements, we need to go to the Sermon on the Mount and see what the Lord is trying to teach here.
