John 17:4-5 NIV
I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.  And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
‘It is finished!’
So Jesus will soon cry from the Cross as he surrenders his life to his Father. Completely faithful throughout his life and even in death, never once did he take his eye off the task in hand; what an inspiration and challenge for us who follow! The wonder is that through faith in his diligence, we are counted as in him – just as he was raised to glory, so shall we be.
Spirit help us to share in Christ’s diligence and be faithful in our service for our Father. Let us bring you glory!
