Reverend Dan is preaching.

John 14:12-14

Life can truly become amazing when we come to realize that everything ultimately comes from the Lord.

Today's text from John reminds us that when we ask for anything in Jesus' name it will be given to us. Jesus says that he will do whatever we ask in His name. The problem is that many of us stop there in the text. The next thing that Jesus says is, "So that the Son may bring glory to the Father." That second part of that sentence changes everything. Are we asking for things that will bring glory to the Father, or are we just asking for things?
