Jno. 17, 20

1.  Prays the Father to glorify his name and consecrates himself to the final work as High Priest.

2.  As he was sent so he sends them into the world.  Prays the Father not to take them out of the world, but to keep them from evil.  His concern indicates  their need and danger.

3.  “That they may all be one.”  United in love and purpose first.  This last is essential unity; without it there can be no organic union.  “Better is a friend that is near than a brother that is far off.”

4.  Prays that they may finally dwell with him and behold his glory.  Take comfort that your Lord wants you to dwell with him in Heaven.

5.  Prays for the twelve and for all who may believe in him through their word.
