New Sermon Series - John 17, The Prayer of Jesus
Wed, February 14, 2018
John 17 records what is often called Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer. The night before Jesus offered himself on the cross for our sins, He prayed for us as our great high priest.
And what did Jesus pray for? Jesus prayed that we might know his glory. He prayed that we might be kept safe in the Father’s hands. He prayed that even though we live in this world, our citizenship belongs to another kingdom. He prayed that we might know the sanctifying truth he revealed to us. He prayed that we might be one with each other as we are one in Him. He prayed that we might know God and the true life he offers.
During the season of Lent, we will listen in to Jesus as he prays to the Father for himself, his disciples and for you and me today.
