Spring Cleaning: Getting Your Soul in Order (May 6th, 2018)

In John 15:9-17, Jesus says that as we spend time with him, “the Father will give you whatever you ask in my [Jesus’] name.” Really? How does that work? Have you ever prayed for something and wanted it so much, but then later, in hindsight, you realize that you are so glad God didn’t give it to you? That’s a clue to what’s really going on in this passage: Jesus wants to do some “spring cleaning” in our souls, to change what we desire and ask for.
