Jesus prayed a generational prayer for us. One that doesn’t pass down by genealogy; but by His Word and Spirit. Jesus prays to our Father:
“But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.”
Everything that Jesus, the Word of God says, is amazing. But focus in on this last part (italics are mine):
“I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
The Word is passed down from you to me. From those who have told us of God’s amazing glory and those we will tell. Isn’t this such an amazing blessing that Jesus prayed for us in this way?
