Just last week, someone spoke to me of this prayer of Jesus as recorded in John 17:
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
Four days later, I saw a book online that looked interesting.
I purchased it and began reading.
Today—only two days after my purchase—I came to a part in the book where it talked about Jesus’ prayer, quoting verses 20-23.
Hearing about these words of Jesus twice in six days makes me think that God is bringing them to my attention at this specific time.
Feeling sure of this, it also makes me remember, once again, that God is with me constantly.
He wants me to understand, to learn, and to grow.
