  • At my church this summer we’re learning about the “hard sayings” of Jesus.
    He said stuff like, “I have not come to give peace but division,” “Judge not” and “Let the dead bury the dead.”
    He also said we could ask for stuff -- “Ask and it will be given to you” and that “everyone who asks receives” (Luke 11:9-10).
    He said, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
    My pastor called it “the big ask.”
