Easter 6

“Amen, Amen, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, He will give it to you.” Jesus says in John 16. It sounds like Jesus has opened up the entire menu for us to order. How about a full helping of Greed with a side order of Adultery, and a large glass of Coveting.

Maybe that’s not exactly what Jesus had in mind. After all, Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Thy will be done.” And the will of the Father is this, that He breaks and hinders every evil plan and purpose of the devil, the world, and our sinful nature, and when He strengthens and keeps us firm in His Word and faith until we die.

Thank you Jesus for overcoming the world so that we may have everything that is according to your will.
