Recently, I was reading Mathew 18: 20
For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:20 NKJV
Then I immediately remembered John 14: 13-14
And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
John 14:13-14 NKJV
According to these two verses, Jesus has assured to give us or to be with us in anything we do or ask in his name.
In my previous encounter with this phrase, “In the name of Jesus” . I never gave it so much thought. Until recently, when it came to my attention that i had to ask God what it meant.
It was revealed to me that, “anything we do/ ask in the name of Jesus”
Its ” anything that we indulge in or anything we ask as children of God that has the motive/intention of bringing glory and honor to the name of Jesus and impacting the kingdom of God“.
Jesus will therefore make it his agenda or his business to making sure that it is fulfilled, so that the father will get his glory through the son, Jesus christ.
It’s therefore more of our intentions and motives behind doing whatever we want to do, if our motive is to bring glory and honour to God through his son Jesus christ and create impact in the kingdom, then be rest assured that Jesus will make sure he sees us through whatever it is or he will make sure we get whatever it is we are asking from him..
Goodbye and God bless you.
