The search for truth is about your truth in the search

Love is as simple as loving. Complexity shoves love aside. Take a stride upon the simple life, and move nothing away from its simplicity.

If we could only love fully, and perfectly as God loves, no searching would ever be required.

To do this though, we need a helper. This is Jesus Christ. Seek him, and you will truly find him. He is always there just waiting for you to do so.

Knock, and the door will be opened

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."

This is a well known quote from the Christian bible. It is found in Saint Matthew's gospel, chapter 7, verse 7.

This advice coming from Jesus himself suggests that our searching must be an active one. We must do something first for ourselves, before we are given what we are seeking.

What is this seeking or searching for truth really all about then?

Why do we need to search, or ask for anything in this way, anyway?

Is there a way that is the best way for us to ask, or to search for the truth, or does the very seeking open up the right ways for us, as we go along?

The truth is the truth of God opening itself up in you from his love living in you as you.

When you knock on the door of love, love never refuses to welcome you with itself.

This is because God is love. When you ask from your heart all requests are granted because God respects the honest asker. When you seek for truth, the seeking is the key to finding.

The seeker has the key to open whatever door he or she comes across that it is necessary for him or her to go through in their lives in order for themselves to grow in their faith and service to God.

When they use the key with enough faith the door opens widely, but if the faith is lacking, the door only partially opens, because on the other side is a projected fear acting as a stone that is holding the door shut.

The paradox of this door is that it is your door. You live on both sides of it.

There is no door to Heaven. Heaven has no doors. The only door that needs to be opened is the presently closed door in your own mind, and in your own heart.

Knock on both doors with enough faith and Jesus is instantly beside you to help you to move through this door. No door that is closed can stay closed in the power of his love.

Who gives you this key to open your door, and how do you find it? Read on!

The search for truth

Love is required to receive the holy spirit.

Love God and obey his commandments to love each other, and to love God.

We are told to love God with our whole person. There should not be left any part of us that is not loving God fully. This guidance is to be found in many places within the bible.

One such place is in Saint Mark's gospel, chapter, 12 and verse 30.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."

"Ask then, and it shall be received."

This is what this verse quoted again in part just above from Saint Mathew's gospel really means. Ask and it shall be given, knock and the door will be opened. This is the door to your heart, which Jesus opens with up for you with his key.

When this first step is done, Jesus will fill you up with renewed spirit, by releasing also his Holy spirit within you. We were created in order to commingle again with God's spirit in this way.

Sin virtually imprisons this spirit behind the door of your heart. Your mind and the way that you think helps to keep it closed. Once closed like this, it requires Jesus with his key to open it for you again.

Only Jesus Christ can do this for you.

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

This is Jesus speaking to his disciples in Saint John's gospel, chapter 14, verse 6.

In this way, you can again receive this greatest of all teachers into your life, because you now love God faithfully, and sincerely, and this means that you wish to obey and to hear his words being spoken to you from his holy spirit now living in you helping you to do just this.

You will have found the truth, and the truth will have set you free.

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

This is another pertinent quote from the bible to finish this short article with. It comes again from Saint John's gospel. It is from chapter 8, and verse 32.

No one comes to the Father ~ except through Jesus. What a controversial ~ yet profoundly accurate statement ~ according to the St. John 14:6 quote.

Thanks ~ Spirited ~ for sharing this article. Blessings to you!

Thanks Helen, nobody can argue with truth, and if they do, it means that they are living from an untruth.
