Holy Ground – John 17 vs 26

It’s time to TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES. 
You are about to move on HOLY GROUND.

In the literature written by human beings on this planet, John 17 is the only lengthy conversation ever recorded between God and God!

‘Let us make man in our image’ (Genesis: 1v26).

‘I praise you, Father …. because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children’ (Matthew: 11v25)

But, here is a long discussion by God and, the Son with God the Father.  (How self-revealing God is!)  When God talks with God, what are his godly, all-encompassing concerns?

There are basically three;

One

John 17: 1-5

The glory of the Father and the glory of the Son.

Two

John  17:  6-19

the well-being of believers – their protection, their unity, their joy, their sanctification ….
How, He loves US!

Three

John  17: 20-26

the salvation of the world – that others will believe, that they will know.  God yearns for them!

Do you want to move into the heart of God?  Do you want to be ‘in sync’ with him, sharing his own priorities?  In John 15, just before Jesus went to the cross, he communicated these same three priorities among his final commands to his eleven disciples.

These are for you and me as well!!!!!!!

  • Make your chief concern the glory of the Father and the glory of the Son, through the power of the Spirit.  Be zealous above all to put him First, First, First!  Settle INTO Him.  As He said, ‘Remain …. IN ME’ (John 15: 1-11).  That’s your first priority.
  • Share His concern for the well-being of your fellow believers – their protection, their unity, their joy, their sanctification.  Give of your time, give yourself!  As Jesus said, ‘Love each other’ (John 15: 12-17).  That’s your second priority.
  • Share His concern for this needy world; reach out!  As He said, ‘You also must testify, for you have been with Me from the beginning’ (John 15: 18-27).  That’s your third priority, your third area of concern.

So, here in John 17, take off your shoes

You are on holy ground

Sit at Jesus’ feet 

Learn from His thinking 

Give
all you are to share his concerns, love his loves, accomplish HIS purposes!!

Be Blessed and enjoy Life to the Fullest!
