It is an amazing thing to think that the God of the Universe would love us so much that He would be willing to live for us, die for us, conquer the grave for us, as well as PRAY FOR US! Listen today as Pastor Bob opens up the Bible to John Chapter 17:10-19, and continues to unpack this beautiful prayer of Jesus, as He turns to His Father in Heaven on behalf of His disciples.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from John 17:10-19

Jesus Prays for His Disciples (cont)

10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of[b] your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by[c] that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by[d] the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
