The Questions of Jesus
A significant way to grow in relationship with someone is by asking and answering questions. You probably have many questions for God regarding origin, meaning, relationships, morality, and destiny. And God has answers. In fact, he answers through Jesus. Jesus is the creator and sustainer of all life. He is the grand purpose of the universe. He is love and goodness. He is the King of kings to whom all will bow and answer. God’s salvation promises throughout history are all fulfilled in Jesus. He is the fulcrum upon which the universe pivots. People who trust Jesus to save them experience joyful, abundant life now and forever. People who reject Jesus choose slavery to sin, death, and torment separated from God and his glory for eternity. Jesus, the preeminent answer, also asked. He strategically engaged, exposed, enjoined, and endeared people through questions. This devotional compiles many of Jesus’ questions for you to explore. His words are as relevant and probing today as when he first asked them. If you want to know who Jesus is and what it means to follow him then question and answer. He exhorts you, “Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.” Also take to heart what he inquires of you for he is instructing you in the wisdom, grace, and truth of God through his questions.
