Lesson 29: The Coming and Going of the Disciples

Jesus told His followers to make a commitment to look up. That is how we receive the spiritual disciplines and values that come from God. Jesus used continuous verbs for asking, seeking, and knocking in order to challenge His disciples to look up continuously and with perseverance. Seeking is repeated and intense asking, and knocking is repeated and intense seeking. Jesus was calling His disciples to be people who are passionate for God. He promised that everyone who asks, seeks, and knocks in this way will be answered. Then Jesus summed up His ethical teaching with one sentence: Do to others what you would have them do to you.This is known as the Golden Rule.
