Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 242

  1. “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:14).

While some might want to see license given here for any selfish ambition, the context reveals Jesus’ words are more about relationship than about receiving blessing. He has just described the connection He enjoys between the Father and is now explaining that theirs is a similar connection with Him. He has been doing the will of the Father and they will be doing His will, obeying His commission and commands. So, anything that is needed in that effort will be given. He isn’t promising to supply a self-focused agenda, but expects them to obey His voice, just as He has obeyed the Father’s. God is not a candy machine with knobs to pull based on one’s sweet tooth. Instead, He is fully the fuel for the mission. He will equip them with everything they need as they fulfill His will.
