“I am the vine, and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me...
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it .”...
If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.
“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”
What marvelous promises!
Jesus is saying that we can be in HIM and He is US! And the same with His Words...
Jesus is the Word and if He remains in us, then we will come to “learn His will and ways” as we learn to “have the mind of Christ” as in 1 Corinthians 2:16 – we will learn to think as the Lord does. This will lead us to ask and pray more according to God's will and in turn, help ensure more positive answers to our more Spirit-led prayers! Hallelujah! This also means, that we won't be asking so much for things that lead to negative results that come with regret.
There is so much peace and comfort living life in His Will! When we live in “the center of God's will”, our victory is secure over the adversities of life and the attacks of the enemy!
As Jesus remains in us and we in Him, His love and light shine through us. God's goodness causes us to live faithfully to Him showing others His goodness and love. While many are far from knowing Him, by seeing God's goodness and love in our lives, it gives them the chance to want to trust and serve Him too. We share God's grace and love because we received His grace and love, not because we expect rewards from Him. The Lord in His mercy and grace, made us His children. The Lord protects us, blesses us, watches over us and provides for us, all because HE LOVES us. His LOVE is more than ENOUGH!
