Love and Glory

1 John 5:14. And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

We can have confidence that what we ask God for will be accomplished. There is a condition on this. What we ask must be in line with God’s will. Our question is how do we know God’s will? We learn his will through studying the scriptures He has provided for us. When we study them we need the help of His Holy Spirit to give us the meaning they hold for our lives here and now. We know His highest purpose is love. When we ask for something is it in line with God’s love? His love is not self-indulgence. God’s love cost Him a His Son’s suffering for us. When we ask for something let’s be sure it is out of love and for the glory of a God.
