The Brew Is A Musing

Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.“ (John 16:24, NIV 1984).

My Musings – We generally tend to focus on the phrase “ask and you will receive,” and grow disenchanted when we do not receive what we ask for. James, in his epistle, states that “when [we] ask, [we] do not receive, because [we] ask with wrong motives[our own pleasures].“ (James 4:3, NIV 1984). If, as John states above, we truly ask in Jesus’ name, our motives will be pure. I say truly, because merely tacking this phrase at the end of a prayer, without really focusing on what His will might be, is merely lip service.

My Advice – Purify your motives in prayer, before attaching Christ’s name to it.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
