John 15: 6-10
6 If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. 8 “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples.9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love.
Have you ever wondered if you have an inside connection with God? Jesus faced the cross and told His disciples, “If you remain in me, and my Words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given to you.” This is a connection with God that we should always honor and take care of. Have we asked ourselves why we the Lord should honor our prayers? Is it only because we are a nice person? We are better than others? No, there is no reason at all. We are all children of God and we have been adopted to His family as a result of faith in Him. Scriptures tells us this very clearly.
So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of children. 6 And because you are children, God sent out the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!” 7 So you are no longer a bond servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
We should all experience the prophecy regarding this that will be given to us by Bishop Bernard Jordan so that we can continue to live life that is perfect in God’s eyes and that we can be the children that God wants us to be.
