JOY

October 3, 2014

Friday

 

John 16:24

 

Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

 

LESSON

 

Jesus next turned the disciples’ attention from the Spirit’s future ministries to His own reappearance. The disciples had not appealed to the Father in Jesus’ name before now. As Old Testament believers, they had undoubtedly grounded their petitions on God’s promises in the Old Testament. However, the access that Jesus now provided them to the Father would assure an even warmer response to their prayers than Old Testament saints received.

Jesus urged His disciples a second time to “ask” the Father. He also gave them assurance that they would “receive” what they requested “in His name”. The consequence of answered prayer would be fullness of “joy” for them.
