Dan Delavan

This week's AM Sunday message was from John 15, where Jesus ties both fruitfulness and answered prayer to "If you abide in me, and MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, you shall ask what you will, and it will be done unto you." (Jn. 15:7)

Your point is well taken: I am afraid that often we are demanding God to provide the fruit of godly children, etc. (ask what you will) while we as parents are not "living" in Christ and His Word. The obvious initial effect of this is that His Word does not "live" in us. The longer term effect is that Christ and His Word do not "live" in our children.
