“Matthew 7:7-8: “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Persistence is key! Do the right thing one day at a time, and do it consistently. In other words: never give up this uphill battle of swimming against mainstream, even fighting against our own bodies; starting at a certain age our bodies have the natural tendencies of going downhill. All life is a battle, however, we need to fight without becoming a cynic. It’s easy to become disillusioned. Persistently knock on heaven’s door. Persistently keep faith in God and in people.

If God had a mantra it would be: “Love God and Love People”. If John had to write the lyrics to faith’s anthem it would probably sound something like this (John 3:36): “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life”. God’s Son is the rock on which we stand in our day-to-day lives. Simon, whom Jesus nicknamed Rock, recommends in one of his letters (2 Peter 1:19):

“When you consider the wonderful truth of the prophets’ words then light will dawn in your souls and Christ the Morning Star will shine in your hearts.” 

Holding on to these things, we’ll see light in the dark and have hope with every rising Sun. And Christ, the Morning Star, will shine in our hearts.
