Jesus Prays for Us

This is one of my very favorite scriptures – John 17.nov 16 2013

Jesus is praying for all those who will believe in him because of the message the disciples will share – that’s us!

The disciples were obedient to Jesus’ command to go and make disciples, teaching others to obey just like they were obeying and baptizing them.  Because of the disciples’ faithfulness to this calling, we have the opportunity to know and be redeemed by Jesus.

They were witnesses to what Jesus had done and they shared what they knew.

They started a legacy of faith that has been passed on to each generation for over 2000 years.

And now it’s our turn.

Now we are the witnesses who need to speak up about Jesus – who he is, what he said and what he has done in our lives.

Now it’s our job to pass the opportunity to know and believe on to the next generation.  We are all called to be witnesses.  We all have personal stories of how the Holy Spirit has moved in our lives and has transformed us.

And we’ve got to pass it on.

So – how are you doing?

  1. Wow! This prayer has been on my mind for the sat week. I thumbed through looking for it but wa in a hurry. My mistake, I believe I was searching Matthew. I ket thinking I need take time and find it. I think God pointed it out to me.
