In this passage, Jesus continues His prayer to His Father. He goes on to develop the idea of unity. This time, however, He asks that the believer (“them”) be united with Him as He is united with the Father. In this one prayer, Jesus unites the believer not only with Himself, but with the Father who sent Him. Through this uniting action, we can know and understand the love of a God who sent His only son to a lost and doomed world.
And we pray:
Jesus, I thank You for Your fervent prayer which unites me not only with You, but with Your Father and my Father. Help me to see the extraordinary Love He has for me, and that You have for me. I am eternally grateful for Your intercession on my behalf. Amen.
