In The World

John 17

Before Jesus was arrested and sent to the cross, He lifted up a prayer to God the Father. What did He pray for during these last moments with His disciples? Kyle McMahon explains how Jesus prayed for His disciples and future Christ followers to be in the world, but not of the world. That through the Word of God and faith in the Gospel, His followers would be set apart from the world.

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, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

John 17:1-5

 

I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. 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.

John 17:6-19

 

Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I was with them, I kept your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak into the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

John 17:11-16

 

We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

1 John 5:19

 

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.

John 17:17-19

 

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!

Isaiah 6:3
