Jesus’ Personal Promise

by Pastor Ken

Whatever you will ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:13

Imagine that Jesus is personally saying to you: “Whatever you will ask in My name, that will I do.”

What would you ask for? Do you know what it means to ask in Jesus’ name? When you ask for things in Jesus’ name, you ask for things that allow you to be more like Him and for things that honor Him.

You should be asking for things in HIS name—things like greater faith, more diligence to prayer, opportunities to serve others, and the courage to reach out to others to share the message of the Gospel. When you ask for these things first, all the rest will come: things of this world, like money, job security, and justice served to someone who offends you,

It’s true! When you ask for things that will bring honor and glory to God, God will honor you by showering you with blessings.

Prayer: Dear Father, give me a pure heart that desires to honor You first and trust in the promise of Your blessings when I do everything in Your name. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
