Now Go Live It

Jesus said, "The one who searches will find, and the one who knocks at the door will have it opened for them." Gospel of Thomas 94

This Logion of Thomas brings to mind the second saying in the Gospel of Thomas:
 "The one who seeks should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be troubled. When they are troubled, they will be in awe, and will reign over all. After reigning they will rest."


The realizations of the spiritual do not usually just fall in the lap of the unwary and even less in the unwilling.  Rather they are found through searching.  A longing... a desire to know God or to know who we are, where we came from and what is our purpose in this life leads to seeking.  Those who seek and do not lose heart will find. The Thomasine message is simple.  You are a child of God, now go and live it.  In that saying is contained the whole message of the Gospel of Thomas.  And yet it will take a lifetime to fully realize the power of being a son of God.  It will take grace upon grace to live it.
