November 13

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”  John 17:17 (NIV)

One of the most important prayers recorded in the Bible is the prayer Jesus prayed the night before He was crucified. This verse is part of that prayer. This is a very brief request, but it is very important. Jesus knew what His followers needed. He knew that they needed to be set apart from God and for a holy purpose. They were human and were subject to worldly pressures, and He yearned to have them devoted to eternal and spiritual purposes. Jesus was praying for us, too, and He is still praying for us. Would He not still be praying the same way for us today? Don’t forget how He prayed. He said the means God would use was His word. That’s how He works in us to set us apart for His eternal purposes. Allow God to speak!
