Day 23 / John Study / She Reads Truth
GLORIFY YOUR SON
John Chapter 17 is ALL about LOVE.
Love= assigning worth to another at cost to yourself.
This is what Jesus came to do. Love at ALL COST.
In this Chapter of John we are honored and privileged to “hear” our Savior and KING’S heart for His people. His most personal request.
Knowing that ALL would betray Him (even His closest friends) He prayed on their (our) behalf!
He didn’t JUST pray for the Father to forgive us, or even for the Father to heal and restore us…
HE PRAYED THAT WE WOULD ALL BE ONE.
He prayed for more than we would have asked for…He prayed for what He knew we needed…beyond what we would even hope for ourselves.
and then, He died for us.
All of us.
You and me.
John Chapter 17 is ALL ABOUT CRAZY LOVE.
LOVE for us yes…& LOVE for the Father…above all else
JOHN 17: 1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.
As the Father is glorified, through the sacrifice of Christ…we are saved.
We were BORN out of love…and that love doesn’t end.
If I ever feel rejected, dismissed, looked over, forgotten, all things are put into perspective as I allow God’s Words to penetrate my heart.
John Chapter 17…The Love Chapter.
This is a well worn Chapter in my Bible.
It is the definiton of Love, plain and simple. It is the Glory of the Lord spoken from the heart of Jesus.
I thought it would be GREAT exercise for you to re-write John 17.
At least part of it. Let the love sink in.
That’s why I left more space for you to write ❤️
May you understand more fully, the Love your God has for you.
KNOW you are loved.
