John 14: 11Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me; or else believe Me for the sake of the [very] works themselves. [If you cannot trust Me, at least let these works that I do in My Father's name convince you.] 12I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.
Here is what I want you to notice................
13And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.
14[Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM].
FOR HIS NAME'S SAKE.
For His great Honor.
Presenting all that He IS!!!!!!!!!!!!
For His glory. To proclaim the GOODNESS of our God.
So that He displays HIMSELF mighty and INCREDIBLE in our lives.
So that it all points.................to Him.
On our own? Our efforts are futile. Our methods are weak and feeble.
But going in the authority of the One who called us to GO?.....going in the POWER of the Holy Spirit and God showing Himself off through our obedience to GO?
We can trust that when God calls us to GO? He equips us...He will show up.....He will accomplish what it is He's wanting to accomplish through us. And when God shows up? GREAT things happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When people see God act on our behalf....when people see God do such extraordinary things through us..........................they can't help but see GOD through our frailty. He does such great things for us and through us and in us.....for HIS NAME'S sake!
..............................SO that the world might KNOW Him. As we know Him.
