Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious name !
The subject verse from the Gospel of John describes the prayer promise that we have in the name of Lord Jesus Christ. Coming to the context of the verse, it is clear that Jesus is addressing the Disciples’ grief. He promised that their grief shall be turned to joy if they ask or pray in certain way that they were not used to previously. Explicitly that is praying to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name.
In the name of Jesus
As the subject verse says, Jesus specifically told the Disciples to ask God anything in His name. Moreover, the assurance of the Lord seems undeniable. For He emphatically says, “Ask and you will receive”. Furthermore, the Amplified Bible translation says not to ask just once, but keep on asking. But the important point here is to ask the Almighty God in Jesus’ name. The Son of God who gave Himself for the love of the Holy Father and love towards the mankind.
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.Matthew 28:18 NLT
On the whole, Jesus declares that our joy will also be complete when we seek in His name. There is power in the name of Jesus. Therefore, not only His power brings full and complete joy to us, but also protects our lives from the vile plans of the adversary. As the above verse says, Jesus has all the authority in heaven and on earth. And nothing shall come to pass without His allowance.
Brethren, let us ask or pray God in the right way. And certainly ask God the best gift which He prepared for us through His Begotten Son. That is the gift of salvation which gives us the eternal joy. Finally, let us ask everything in Jesus precious and matchless name. Amen.
