Questions leave a mark on our lives. The questions we answer help to determine who we are and who we become. The questions we can’t answer can haunt us and keep us from discovering or living out the destiny God has in store for us. Our questions, our interrogatives, surround us and intrigue us and control us in ways deeper than we often realize.
Because questions are so influential, we need to have the courage to ask them. We need to find a way to bring our questions to the One who can lead us to an answer – Jesus. But that’s not easy to do. Voltaire, the French philosopher, once wrote that God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh. If that’s true, then perhaps we can say that Jesus is a teacher playing to students too afraid to ask.
Questions, answered and unanswered, will leave a mark on our lives. So we need to bring these questions to Jesus. As we let the questions in and live the answer out, we’ll discover that we can drink in His life and pour out our lives. And in the process, we’ll find that the mark our questions for Jesus leave on our lives becomes not just an interrogative but an exclamation pointing others to our God.
This is the heartbeat of the Room 1228 theme Interrogatives. As you ask these questions that leave a mark, we trust that Jesus will reveal Himself to you.
