We’re On The Way – Good News for May 24

John 17:11-19

Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying, “Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one. When I was with them I protected them in your name that you gave me, and I guarded them, and none of them was lost except the son of destruction, in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

But now I am coming to you.

I speak this in the world so that they may share my joy completely. I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth.”

The Daily Path: “I am coming to you.”

There’s the mission statement for all of us on the spiritual journey. Father, we ARE all coming to you. 

Have a great Sunday. 

Room to Chat: Father, in the name of Jesus, please continue to guard us on the way home.
