Day 30 – John 17:24-26
Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions
Read John 17:24-26
V24: Jesus now speaks in His prayer of His desire for His people to be with Him in glory – not that we are to think this is in any doubt, it will be the fruit of His finished work. His prayer lays before the Father what He has already ordained, in faith. Does this mark our praying? His people will be with Him, to see Him as He truly is, and always has been – the eternal Son of God, the Lord of glory But how wonderful the words of the familiar hymn – “When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the PRINCE OF GLORY died!”
V25-26: The righteous and Holy Father is unknown to a world in rebellion against Him, and in rejection of His truth, but the Son who has (eternally) known the Father makes Him known to His redeemed people – remember, not just those first disciples, this prayer is now for ALL His people. – ” I will continue to make it known”. The prayer ends with the desire that all His people will be indwelt by God’s love, and by Jesus Himself. The work of the Holy Spirit is the only way this can be so, but He is given to every believer.
