Scripture: Luke 11:5-13
In Luke’s version of “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you…” we have the context of the Lord’s Prayer. In Luke’s version ask, seek and knock come in the context of proclaiming and declaring the Kingdom and the will of God to be done. Once again we have both a Priestly and a Kingly function of this concept. The only addition that Luke has is, how much more will your Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him. The Holy Spirit executes justice and establishes the Kingdom. The more carefully we look at Scripture the more we realize that very familiar passages have both a Priestly and a Kingly manifestation depending on what is needed and depending on what we face.
