What's your desire?

John 15:7 (NKJV)
"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will
ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you."

(Amplified Bible)

If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain
in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will,
and it shall be done for you.

What Jesus is saying is: I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you're joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can't produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples.

If I am correct? then the thing that you should
most desire to ask of God is His will for your life?

Real love

1 John 3:18

"Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth."

Let's not just talk about love; let's practice real love. This is the only way we'll
know we're living truly, living in God's reality. It's also the way to shut down
debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater
than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.

to make weak or feeble; enfeeble:


the act or fact of being self-critical.

Critical of oneself and one's faults and weaknesses.

You are the God who saves us!

John 12:13

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the King of Israel!"

Galatians 1:3-5 "Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."

The Message

I, Paul, and my companions in faith here, send greetings to the Galatian churches. My authority for writing to you does not come from any popular vote of the people, nor does it come through the appointment of some human higher-up. It comes directly from Jesus the Messiah and God the Father, who raised him from the dead. I'm God-commissioned. So I greet you with the great words, grace and peace! We know the meaning of those words because Jesus Christ rescued us from this evil world we're in by offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins. God's plan is that we all experience that rescue. Glory to God forever! Oh, yes!

Comissioned Means:

1. The act of granting certain powers or the
authority to carry out a particular task or duty.
2. The authority so granted.
3. The matter or task so authorized:
