One Powerful Prayer of Jesus

John 17 is Jesus praying for his disciples. It is beautiful.

In v. 17 I find one of the most powerful sentences in that prayer, with three incredibly powerful words.

 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.

Sanctify: to make holy. To set apart. To consecrate.

Truth: not just making correcting statements. It is living in Christ. It living in truth.

Word: logos. It is the essence of Christ. In the beginning was the Word…

We have a tremendous calling. It is a high and holy calling. It is not a calling that says, “You are saved, so get out of this world.”

It is a precious calling that says, “You are commissioned by the One who is truth to live out that truth in this world today. Get to it.”
