Jesus was praying that you and I will be protected by the supernatural power of God as we intentionally engage the people around us, whoever they may be, with the goodness of God’s love, the gentleness of God’s goodness, and the good news of God’s gospel.
Gospel of John: Jesus Glorified
Jesus glorifies the Father by giving eternal life to all those whom the Father has given him. You and I glorify both the Father and the Son when we receive eternal life through God’s Spirit.
Gospel of John: Be One
Every one of us who put our faith in Jesus will discover we share something deep with each other because we share something deep together with God.
Gospel of John: Made One
Only in proportion as believers are made perfect in oneness with God through Jesus, and therefore with each other, will the world recognize that God did send Jesus.
Gospel of John: Jesus Prays
Prayer is about making ourselves available to God to be loved, spoken to, and claimed by God. As we set aside our guarded, self-protective ways before the Lord, we open ourselves to the infilling of God's presence.
