A Lifetime Warranty - And No "Fine Print"


"For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened" (Matt 7:7).

Yesterday I wrote to you about several guarantees from God. I've got a few more. Unalike warrantees on items we buy, that are usually for a specified time, the guarantees from God are for our lifetime. Think of that....A lifetime guarantee! The young people in our church love to sing the song, "Seek Ye First." It is an adaptation of Matthew 6:33 and today's verse. It flows beautifully and the words tell of some of God's guarantees.

If we seek, we will find. When we seek God through His Word, we will find all of His promises to us. "All these things will be given to you as well." God promises to answer if we ask and open the door if we knock. What a security blanket to have our powerful God tender to each of our cares.

There is this wonderful guarantee from Jesus that He gave to us as He ascended into heaven. "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." When we take Jesus into our lives, it is for a lifetime. He makes that promise that He will always be with us, interceding for us to our Father. To go along with that guarantee, comes another. When Jesus sensed that the hearts of His followers were troubled, He told them to trust in God and then said this; "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am" (John 14:3). As I write this morning, Jesus is preparing that place for each of us.

Finally, from the pen of Paul come these words. "the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will receive eternal life" (Gal. 6:9). Its kind of like the contract we sign to get all of the guarantees. All we have to do is accept the terms of the deal and "all these things will be added unto us." What a Mighty God we serve! One who is always able to keep His promises.

Have a great day...Go about doing good...Love mark Phil. 4:11
