Concierge God John 14:8-17 (25-27)

Concierge God

When Jesus promises us that God will answer our prayers like a Concierge from the clouds, what does he really have in mind?

Concierge service.

Now you can get it in your car. "OnStar" is not only a global satellite positioning system that tells you where you are and how to get where you're going.

You simply press a button on the console attached to your rear-view mirror. Then you hear a voice saying, "What can I do for you?" - and calling you by name!

It's like a concierge from the clouds, somebody up in heaven watching out for you.

"I'm showing you in Washington, D.C.," said the heavenly voice. "Let me zoom in ... I see you on ... 15th Street Northwest."
