Lent Day 38 – John 17 – Jesus Prays for YOU
Where in the Word are you today? I’m in John 17
Knowing what was coming, knowing he had little time left in this world, Jesus called his friends together to pray. Jesus prayed for them and Jesus prayed for us. That’s right! 2000 years ago, Jesus prayed for us! How extraordinary is that? The very Son of the living God, the One who would bear our transgressions and die that we might live, He prayed for us. If you want to know how much you are loved, read the prayer of Jesus Christ for you in John 17.
He prays you will be with him.
He prays for us to be unified in spirit and love in such a way that the world would come to know the love of God. Jesus prays that the love of God might be in us and that Christ Himself might dwell in us.
Wow. Jesus prayed that – for you and for me.
