Today's Verse: John 17:24

Friday, July 23, 2021

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.
— John 17:24

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Wow, what an unbelievable collection of high powered phrases of truth and promise! We are a gift from the Father to Jesus. Jesus wants us to be with him in the glorious presence of God. Jesus wants us to see his glory and experience it. Jesus has been loved by the Father from before the Creation. Think about these things. Ask God to show you how powerfully they reveal our importance to him. Dream of the day you will share in God's glory as one of his children! (cf. 1 John 3:1-3) Now, let's go live based on the view God has of us.

My Prayer...

Almighty God and Abba Father, forgive me for the mundane and earthbound view that I have of myself and your other children. Through your Spirit, stir in me a more profound appreciation of Jesus' disciples and how much each of us means to you. Please empower me to be more patient, tolerant, forgiving, and respectful of my Christian brothers' and sisters' imperfections as I acknowledge my own imperfections and as I long for the day that we are united in perfection before your holy throne of grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
