Sunday Meditation – Two Promises, Two Commands

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. – John 15:7

Jesus made a promise that if we remain in Him and His words remain in us, we can ask Him anything in His name and the Father will give it to us.

How to claim that promise?

– Obey His commands.

You are my friends if you do what I command. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. – 14 & 12

Jesus made another promise that we are His friends if we follow His command.

How to claim that promise?

– Love one another just as Jesus has loved us.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.- 16
