John 17:13-21

Jesus prays to his Father on our behalf —that is, his disciples—using many powerful phrases to spur our thoughts and speak to our hearts: “Joy fulfilled,” “the world hated,” “not of the world,” “keep them from the evil one,” “sanctify them,” “Your word is truth,” “so I have sent them,” “they all may be one,” “they might be in us,” and “that the world may believe.” Which of these speaks to you and where your thoughts dwell today?
