IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT JESUS DID NOT PRAY FOR THE PHILIPPINES, AMERICA OR THE WORLD FOR THAT MATTER, BUT HE PRAYED FOR HIS DISCIPLES AND THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE IN HIM THROUGH THEIR MESSAGE.
(John 17:9) I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.
(John 17:20-22) “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one”
JESUS MAY NOT HAVE PRAYED FOR OUR COUNTRY, BUT IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST, HE CERTAINLY DID PRAY FOR YOU!
JESUS SAID THAT HE HAS GIVEN US THE GLORY THAT THE FATHER GAVE HIM. (John 17:22) “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one”
BRETHREN, GOD’S WORD DECLARES “AS CHRIST IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD! (1Jn 4:17) “In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the Day of Judgment, because as He is, so are we in this world.”
YOU SEE, IN CHRIST, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BECOME….YOU ALREADY ARE!
WHAT IS REQUIRED OF US IS TO REST IN CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS AND STAY RESTED.
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
