KEY PRINCIPLE OF PRAYER #16: JESUS IS THE OBJECT!
We must never forget that, above all, Jesus and our daily walk with Him is the object of our existence here. The secret of success: The day to day intimate walk with Jesus! The "scorecard": the number of people you influenced for the Kingdom! Jesus is “the Way, the Truth and the Life …” (John 14:6). Jesus said this about Himself:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” (John 15:5-8).
