Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 304

  1. “I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message” (John 17:20).

Somehow, the limitations of time are suspended to include you and I in the Jesus narrative. He actually speaks of us in this remarkable prayer. We are among those who believe in Him because we have heard their message. And we are in focus as He adds his experiential knowledge of human life to the Father’s omniscient understanding. Elsewhere, we are reminded that Jesus continues this intercession from His vantage point at the Father’s right hand, and it seems reasonable to conclude that this is the content of that intercession. After all, the circumstances have yet to change. We remain in the world and in need of the Spirit’s help to demonstrate our unity with Christ and with one another. We need the Father to “keep” us as the lures toward other paths continue to tempt. We need to see the heart of Jesus for us as we face the challenges of each day. And, finally, we need to see that Jesus’ love for us is an active love. He’s not One to simply watch us from a distance.
