Looking Ahead

Father Perry D. Leiker
By Father Perry D. Leiker

Knocking at the door that no one answers, because no one is at home, is indeed frustrating, but at least we understand why: no one is home.

But what if they are home and no one answers. Why won’t they open? Why are we left out there?

It is a provocative question with a disturbing answer; many will think that it applies to the end of time or after we die. It is, however, much more urgent. It isn’t about later; it is about now.

When God speaks, is there any other real choice than to listen? When we peaking about God. Shouldn’t his voice be first and only? Of course, this depends upon our understanding and appreciating of God in our lives. And does God only speak at certain times, is his voice now and always in this and in that or, simply, in everything at all times?

Who is God to you and me? What, where and how is his voice for you and me?

If we knock, won’t he always open?

The real question is: Will we even knock?
