In the Name of Jesus (John 14:10-14) Commentary


 It is futile to pray in the name of Jesus if we do not believe in him. Jesus is the Son of God. God gave him all authority. He is one with his Father, and he is the only way to Him. Jesus became the mediator between us and God by suffering for our sins. To pray in the name of of Jesus means to pray as his follower, not just to say the words. The favor of God is bestowed upon those who belong to Him, who have accepted his gift of salvation. There is nothing that is good for us that Jesus will deny us. In today’s world, there is an attempt by modern culture and society to silence praying in the name of Jesus. People will accept a generic ‘god’ but not Jesus. God wants you to know who He is. He wants you to know who you are praying to, and what he has done for you. God wants you to know He loves you, and we pray by the example of His love for us, who is our Lord Jesus. Nothing else will suffice.
