John 17:4-8

John 17:4 I have made you glorious on the land by completing the work you gave me to do.

John 17:5 Now, Father, make me glorious in your presence with that glory I had with you before the world existed.

John 17:6 “I have made your name public to the people you gave me from the world. They were yours, you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.

John 17:7 Now they have discovered that everything you have given is from you,

John 17:8 because I have given them the words you gave me. They have received them and have discovered that I exited from you. They have trusted that you sent me.

fully responding to the gospel

In this prayer, Jesus mentions two gifts he had received from the Father. The Father had given him people (6) and words (8). We call these people the church, and the words we call the gospel. How does the church respond to the gospel?

  • We receive the gospel (8)

  • We keep the gospel (6)

  • We discover more truth (7-8)

  • We trust what we discover (8).

Lord, may our response to your gospel be as full and rich as the gospel itself is.
