John 17:16 to 19 – Father, protect them

Posted by on 29th Jan, 2012 in Sermons | Tagged in: | 0 comments

In John 17 Jesus prays for his disciples. Jesus has revealed the Father to them by his works and words. He prays for his disciples that they may be protected by the word of God when he is gone. They are being sent into the world as he was sent: motivated by the love of God to bring the word of God.

Jesus continues to comfort his disciples that although he is leaving them, he will still be with them and they have everything to look forward to. In this section he assures them that they will be joyful again when they see him after his death and resurrection; they will be joyful when they realise they have a direct relationship with the Father because of the Son, and this will sustain them and give them peace even in great trouble that they will face.
