If you Abide in Christ, and the Word abide in you,
God will do what you desire, John 15:7.

These two verses are among the very important verses of scripture that Jesus Christ has told us. John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. One verse warns us that we will burn in hell, if we do not abide in Christ. The other verse says that God will grant us the things we ask for, including his kingdom. So, we will study all things from the word of God for our benefit, including how to abide in Christ.
