If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.
So that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after Him and find Him, although He is not far from each one of us.
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].
For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened.
It is one of my deepest hopes that I will raise you to seek God for yourselves. That I will never present Jesus to you simply as I have found Him, but that I will encourage you to seek and find Him on your own. I pray that religion never grabs hold of you and squelches your questions. God is not bothered or angered by your questions. He created you with an innate desire to seek Him out and how can we seek or gain wisdom if we never ask questions? Questioning and doubting are not synonymous. If you only ever accept what you are told by others, what you will be left with is a dead shell of religion. You will know about God, but you will not know Him. My desire is that you know Him, and His character personally. You can be taught and learn from others and I can teach you what I have learned, but it won't be real to you when it matters. For faith to manifest in your heart you must seek and question and prod and knock and ask with earnest expectation of being answered. It doesn't scare me to encourage you to do this, because I know that He is faithful to reveal Himself to everyone who looks for Him with a pure and genuine motive. I don't want to push Christianity on you, I want to point you in the direction of the Christ, so you can see and hear with your own eyes and ears. Never let me scold you for asking difficult questions, but remind me of this letter and that it is your spirit crying out to know and be known. And most of all...
"May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! "
