I want to share something with you today that will thrill you to death. Here it is! The Lord Jesus talked to the Father about you today, if you are His!
John 17:9 says, “I pray for them, I pray not for the world, but for them who you have given me, for they are mine!
You see, Jesus doesn’t pray for the world, He died for it, but He talks to God the Father about the ones who know Him!
He prays for two things: 1. He prays that we’ll be kept! You will be kept because you’ve been sealed by the Holy Spirit and because your Saviour is praying for you. 2. He prays for the unity of believers. He prays to the Father that those of us who know Him might be one and it doesn’t matter if we’re Baptist, Methodist, or Church of Christ!
John 17:11, And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom you have given me, that they may be one, as we are one!
He’s praying for you and me. If this doesn’t light your shucks, you’re woods all wet!
