If you abide in me (Jn 15:7-15:7)

“If you abide

In me,

And my words

Abide in you,

Ask for whatever

You wish!

It will be done

For you!”

ἐὰν μείνητε ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ τὰ ῥήματά μου ἐν ὑμῖν μείνῃ, ὃ ἐὰν θέλητε αἰτήσασθε καὶ γενήσεται ὑμῖν

John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that if they abided in Jesus (ἐὰν μείνητε ἐν ἐμοὶ) and his words (καὶ τὰ ῥήματά μου) abided in them (ἐν ὑμῖν μείνῃ), then they could ask for whatever they wanted (ὃ ἐὰν θέλητε αἰτήσασθε).  It would be done for them (καὶ γενήσεται ὑμῖν).  Jesus continued with the concept of unity and abiding in him, and them in him.  If Jesus and his words remained with them, then they could ask for whatever they wished.  Jesus said it would be done for them.  Unity with Jesus and his words gave you the inside track to Jesus and God the Father.  Do you ask Jesus for what you want?
