Thinx 99: God is the point, not you

"If anyone does not remain in me, he is thrown out like a branch, and dries up; and such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and are burned up. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you."
Your asking will be in line with the nature and goals of God.

Asking whatever you wish does not include necessarily, being forever healthy, having lots of cars, boats, houses, fancy clothes and flaunting ostentatious wealth. One may need a car. But five!?

Abiding in Christ means learning to think, reason and value the way Jesus does. Abiding does not mean making yourself the focus of all effort.
