And he prayed for you.
One of my favorite things about the Chronological Bible is we are reading about Jesus’ last days before his crucifixion in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving.
It’s so appropriate!
The holiday reminds me to be thankful and God’s Word reminds me the most important thing to be thankful for – Christ’s sacrifice for me.
For God so loved the world…
Life everlasting with my Abba Father.
I love reading the prayer of Jesus in John 17. He included us as he prayed to his Father for his disciples. “My prayers is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (vs 20-23)
We know Jesus because the disciples faithfully shared with others the Truth they had seen and heard. And we pay it forward by sharing what we have seen and heard about the Jesus with others…
in gratitude for what Christ did for us.
May we be found faithful witnesses to your love and grace, Abba Father.
