John 17: The Prayer of Jesus

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Even if we have spent time with this prayer before it is well worth our while to spend time with this chapter; it reveals a Christ who is eager to pray for each of us . . . directly . . .

I pray not only for them [my apostles gathered around me], but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you , Father, are in me and I in you, that they may also be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.

And we do believe that God sent Jesus . . . The Word . . . God’s Expression of Self to Us.

We do believe that God is in Jesus . . . that God is in us . . . and that we are in Jesus and God.

We do believe that we are given glory.

We do believe that we are to be brought to perfection as one.

We do believe that we are a gift to Jesus and to God.

We do believe that Jesus’ love is in us and that we are in him . . . as love . . . a love which knows no bounds . . . no impossibilities . . . no constraints . . . no conditions . . . no barriers . . . no darkness . . . no death.

We do believe!
