Just as all Jesus' words and actions emerge from his communion with his Father, so all our words and actions must emerge from our communion with Jesus.
"In all truth I tell you," he says, "whoever believes in me will perform the same works as I do myself, and will perform even greater works. ... Whatever you ask for in my name I will do" (John 14:12-13).
It is this simple yet profound truth that reveals the relationship between the spiritual life and the life of ministry.
Jesus says, "Whatever you ask for in my name I will do"
