Today I would like to look at John 17 verse 1-5
1)After Jesus finished saying this, he looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Give glory to your Son, so that the Son may give glory to You.
2)For you gave Him authority over all humanity, so that He might give eternal life to all those you gave Him.
3)And eternal life means knowing You, the only true God, and knowing Jesus Christ, whom You sent.
4)I have shown Your glory on earth; I have finished the work You gave Me to do.
5)Father! Give Me glory in Your presence now, the same glory I had with You before the world was made.
God gave Jesus authority over all humanity, so that He could give eternal life to all, people God gave to Him. How do one receive eternal life, by knowing the only true God, and His Son Jesus Christ whom He sent to die for our sins. We must believe that Jesus died for our sins, and in so doing paid for our sins in full, so that we can live an eternal life in the presence of our God. By dying for our sins and by being resurrected from death , Jesus has completed His work on earth, and now He could return to His Father to share in His glory, the same glory He had from the beginning.
Have a wonderful day.
