A Message from God’s Word

Gospel of John 17

“Jesus Prays”

John 17:15-16 – We Are Not of the World, “I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keepe them from the euill. They are not of the world, euen as I am not of the world.”

Jesus states clearly in this prayer he prays to the Father on our behalf that, as Jesus was not a part of this world, nor are his followers a part of this world. This is good news for all believers in Jesus! The good news is that we don’t have to be influenced or provoked by this world, our hearts and minds are connected to Jesus who reigns in heaven where our true home is established.

Jesus has gone ahead of our arrival to prepare a place for us in our true citizenship in heaven; we are only ambassadors in this physical realm while we are on earth representing our God. It is good to rely on God for all of our needs in this world knowing more each day this realm holds no promise. As Paul warns the Philippians in chapter 3 verse 2 and 3, “Beware of dogs, beware of euill workers: beware of the concision. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.”

In our world today it is consoling to be a child of God while living in a world that is in chaos, we don’t have to be fooled and pretend to know everything, to be all wise all of the time. God grants us wisdom but we know we are not the “Wise One”, God gives us wisdom as we need it to help others that cross our path that He sends our way.

Let us be thankful and remember to ask God for that wisdom each day to know and recognize those He sends our way for the benefit of glorifying our God!
