Have any of you ever heard of “Name it and Claim it”? This is the idea that if we name something in the name of Jesus, He will give it to us. Many people substantiate this idea by claiming John 14:14, You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. The problem is they fail to read the previous verse, John 14:13, And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. It is important to know that Jesus will do anything we ask, not for our glory, but to bring glory to God The Father. When we ask God for help, are we asking for our own selfish gain? Or are we asking so that it may glorify Him and bring others to a personal relationship with Him? Our motives matter.
