John 17:1-5 NIVUK
After Jesus said this, he looked towards heaven and prayed:
‘Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
At the Christian Union at St. Mary’s I’ve been getting the youth to think about their aims and desires in life. Jesus’ ultimate aim was not to die, but to bring as many as possible to know God the Father. What’s yours?
Knowing you, Father, and making you known? There is no greater thing.
