If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given youâ€
(John 15:7, NIV)
Does this scripture make you laugh or cry? Maybe I should read it from a different point of view?
The Message John 15:7-8
“I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he isâ€”when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples.”
