Desire + Will = ? (John 14:12-16)Jeff Patton, April 23, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
There is one thing in a Christians life that can't be done enough and that's prayer. Before one can be born again, one must pray. When we pray, we should pray in Gods will. We should always ask what Gods will is in our lives. We should be willing to do what God tells us to do. Nothing that we do is good unless it's through Gods will. We need more help today than we have ever needed. We need to stop asking God to do them and start asking God what He wants us to do. What is Gods will? 2 Peter 9 His will is to seek those that are lost. God wants our very best and not our leftovers. God asks us to lay down our lives as a living sacrifice. That means we need to give it ALL. We are naked before God. We might be able to hide the sins from our neighbors but God sees each and every sin. John 16:23-24 Do you have joy in your prayer? It's a blessing that we get to go to Gods throne room and ask Him directly for our loved ones. John 15:7-10 We don't have power in our prayers because we choose to do what we want to. John 15:16 We should show fruit of that of a Christian to those around you. What could happen if Gods desire plus Gods will could equal to?

12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; (KJV)
