What Did Jesus Promise?


John 14:

12 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father". 
       
13 "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son".

14 "If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it".

15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments". 

16 "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever";

17 "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you".

18 "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you"



So often we hear someone question; "Why should I pray, does God even hear? He never seems to answer my prayers."  Many christians talk to God abstractly or only when things are at their worst. Jesus made it very clear in scriptures that answered prayers are conditional. 

1.  We must be believers - we must have accepted Jesus as our LORD and SAVIOR

2. We must follow the commandments. (Sin seperates us from God) 

3. We must go to God through the Holy Spirit in Jesus name

4. As we beleive God "CAN" -  We must have "Faith" through our obedience He - "Will"

5. We must be intentional as we surrender to God's "Will" and "Purpose" for our Lives

6. As He leads us to "Ministry" and "Missions" we cannot take over and check Him at the
    door, he must be included in "every" aspect of the work we do for Him

7. We must pray for - wisdom, discerment, strength, and courgage to remain faithful




Blessed Assurance

 Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
Perfect submission, perfect delight
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long

Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blessed
Watching and waiting, looking above
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
