I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.
And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you.
Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one,
even as we are one.
There is a glory present in we who believe in Jesus that is unmatched in the world. There is simply something beautiful when the ones who Jesus embraced as his own live in ways that glorify the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And I believe that we most glorify God when we live in ways that exemply the words "that they may be one, even as we are one".
I love the way that the Lord Jesus speaks of his disciples, and we who have believed, as his very own. The writer of Hebrews tells us that the resurrected Christ ever lives to make intercession for us. In truth we are always in His heart. The Lord is with us and empowering us at every turn. We are not abandoned in this world and do not have to fight alone.
Lord Jesus, I am so comforted today knowing that you are interceding for me.
