Monday, April 11th

I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. John 17:14-18

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Today’s Scripture is from a very special prayer Jesus prayed to the Father just before his arrest and crucifixion. Much of his prayer is for his followers. Jesus came to provide redemption for the world but he also came to mobilize the recipients of redemption into a network of agents of redemption. This network is the church of Jesus Christ. Jesus is praying for those he entrusts with God’s word, the truth. He prays that they will be sanctified by the truth. Those who are entrusted with the truth and sanctified by the truth, are those Christ sends into the world with the truth.

Jesus says that he sends his followers into the world in the same way the Father sent him into the world. Jesus knows firsthand what happens to those who are entrusted with the truth, sanctified by the truth, sent with the truth, and used to spread the truth. He knows they will be opposed and that they will suffer as agents of the truth. Jesus knows the only way to avoid this is to not be in the world. So, he does not pray that we will be spared altogether but that we will be protected in the middle of our being used to spread the truth.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I see that your plan is simply that those who are reached are those you use to reach others. Teach me more of what this means for my life. Help me embrace all you are calling me to and show me what to do in the face of opposition. Thank you Jesus for your work of interceding for me which began with your mighty prayer so very long ago. Amen!
