33 Friday 04-03
8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip,
and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
How can you say, “Show us the Father’?
10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own;
but the Father who dwells in me does his works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me;
but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves.
12 Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me
will also do the works that I do and, in fact,
will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.
13 I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.
Is there a more powerful passage for the modern day reader of John’s Gospel?
It is a statement that should not be taken lightly!
Consider carefully what you should ask for in Jesus’ name.
