“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
GNT … I tell you for sure, if you have faith in me, you will do the same things that I did. You will do even greater things, now that I am back with the Father.
Ask me and I will do all you ask. This way the Son will bring honour to the Father. I will do all you ask me to do and if you love me you will do as I command’.
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, keep My commandments’
Asking from Jesus and getting what you ask, is Jesus’ way of honouring God the Father, so why does it seem we don’t get everything we ask? It’s a matter of Faith and asking & doing the same things Jesus did; Jesus never asked for himself, but because of His love, always asked for others, the poor, the sick, the hungry and anyone in need.
