Whenever I want to express to someone, who they are in Christ, I go to Ephesians 1. Whenever I need to be reminded of the magnitude of our God’s Grace, I turn to these amazing truths. My favorite graduation gift to give to a young […]
I LOVE Solomon’s prayer…His heart was motivated by the “I’M THIRD” principal:)
1. God 2.Others 3.Myself
I have “adopted” his prayer, daily asking the Lord for wisdom, in order to better love and serve others. As we see in this example, God was pleased with Solomon’s “heart”
granting his request and “then some!”
It’s all about LOVE.
20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”
This, our Savior prayed…for all those who would betray Him…for those who hurt Him, turned away from Him, rejected Him, denied Him…killed Him.
He prayed for us all…knowing what He knew….moments before the final curtain was torn.
no greater LOVE could we ever know.
