Show Them How to Knock on Heaven's Door

by Heather Tietz

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons. Freely you received, so freely give.

Matthew 10:8

What has Jesus done for you? What infirmity were you unexpectedly healed from? What bad life choice were you saved out of? What demons have been chased away? God has been good to us. Surely you have a salvation story, you have a moment or two when the God who Sees, saw your desperation and swept you out from under it.

Now it is your turn. If you have tasted God’s goodness, it is your responsibility to pass it onward to someone else. Maybe you are not a doctor, but you can pray for healing for a neighbor. You’re not a counselor perhaps but you can speak, write or text encouraging words. You can send a pleading prayer on their behalf.

You can literally lay on others your hands of faith. Share your connection with the Almighty. Show them how easy it is to knock on the door to Heaven. Let them have the comfort, the peace, the hope that was given to you.
