“I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received, and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and they have believed that Thou didst send Me.” John 17:6-8
These are from the prayer Jesus prayed in the garden of the press – Gethsemane. It has been called His High Priestly prayer, and in reality is the real “Lord’s Prayer”, because this is what He is praying for all those who will follow Him believing.
In these three verses we can learn part of what He is asking for us…
One, that He has revealed the Father’s name to those who believe and redeemed them out of the world;
Two, those who believe are kept by the word of God;
Three, we can know that all things given to Christ Jesus came from the Father;
Four, the words Jesus spoke and lived have been received by those who believe;
Five, those believing receive Jesus Christ, His words, and His works.
How about you? Have you believed that Jesus loved you so much that He died on the cross for your sins, that He was buried, and that He rose again? If not, call out to Him turning from sin to believing in Him. He will hear. He will save you. He makes you clean.
