john17Today’s lesson of Pursuing More of Jesus was overflowing with the love and commitment of Jesus. These verses are so rich with information, my Pastor would probably spend two months in sermon on this! As it stands, we’re spending a short amount of time-just one day’s lesson.  My favorites from this lesson include:

Now they know-verse 7
They know with certainty-verse 8
They believed-verse 8
Glory has come-verse 10
They may be one as we are-verse 11

    Today’s Scripture Verse (Jesus Prays for His Disciples)

    I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11I 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 your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one as we are one. 12While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled. John 17:6-12

    Prayer Requests

    Almighty God, protect us in the name of Jesus and fill our hearts, souls and and minds with his love. May we know Jesus with certainty. May we Believe Jesus with confidence. May we see your glory and shine your grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
