Read John 17.
- What was Jesus' primary request for himself?
- How did Jesus define eternal life?
- What were Jesus' main requests for his disciples?
- What did Jesus ask for future believers?
- Why did Jesus call God "righteous Father?"
- Reflect: This is such an amazing prayer and one we can learn a lot from. Jesus asks God to glorify him so he can bring glory back to God. Jesus acknowledges that his life wasn’t his own, and he served others with it. He prays for the believers left behind as he will soon die for them and us. His prayer is that God is glorified in everything he did, and everything that will ever be done by followers in his name.
- Ask: What are we doing today to glorify God? How are we serving others with the things God does for us?
- Activity: Just as this chapter is a prayer, pray that God will help guide you in His will for you so you can continue to bring glory to His name.
- How does God sanctify those who follow Jesus? (17:17,19)
