"  For us , Jesus Prays ,  "
“[Jesus] lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, ‘Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you
have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know
you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave
me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

“‘I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and
they have kept your word. Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. For I have given them the words
that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that
you sent me. I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. All
mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am
coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I
was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except
the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that
they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of
the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.
They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.                                          
As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be
sanctified in truth.   “‘I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be
one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that
they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. Father, I
desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you
loved me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these
know that you have sent me. I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you
have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”     Robert Murray McCheyne wrote, “If I could hear Christ praying for me in the
next room, I would not fear a million of enemies. Yet the distance makes no difference; He is praying for me.” [2] That is a
powerful affirmation for each Child of God. As a Christian, would you conduct your life differently if you knew that Jesus was
praying for you? Would you live more boldly if you heard Jesus praying for you? Jesus is praying for you! “This is evidence of the
righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering—since
indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to grant relief to you who are afflicted as well as to
us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not
know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away
from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be
marveled at among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed” [2 THESSALONIANS 1:3-10].

Take note of the reason Paul says Jesus is coming again. To be sure, He is coming to reign. To be certain, He will judge the wicked
of this earth. Those who have refused to receive Him as Master over life will be shut out from His presence for all eternity.
However, one great reason for the return of the Christ is to permit Him to be glorified in His saints and to be marvelled at among all
who have believed. Don’t pass by that truth too quickly. Jesus will return to be glorified in His saints.

Take a good look at the people sharing this service with you. They look rather normal to your eyes. However, at the return of
Christ, these who have believed the Son of God will be radiant in beauty. They will shine as the stars in the heavens. They will be
robed in white garments that no man made. They will be clothed with the glory of the Living God. These magnificent creatures will
beggar the brilliance of the sun and Christ will be glorified in them! We will marvel at His presence   “If you confess with your
mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart,
resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, Everyone who believes
on him will not be put to shame, since there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, because the same Lord of all richly blesses all
who call on him. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” [ROMANS 10:9-13 CSB].    Immediately before
ascending into the Glory, Jesus charged those who were gathered on a hill outside of Jerusalem, “You will receive power when the
Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the
earth” [ACTS 1:8]. Telling others of the salvation that is offered in Christ as Lord is incumbent upon each Christian. If I am not
telling others of the life that is offered in Christ the Lord, I am disobedient to His last work. He prayed that we would be effective in
evangelism. He promised to be present with us as we evangelised. He charged us with the responsibility to evangelise.

The Master has left us here to honour Him through discipling others. If all we do is soak up the blessings of salvation without
sharing with others, we dishonour Him, and we misappropriate the salvation we claim to have received. If we are not telling others
of Christ the Lord, we are inviting divine judgement. Why should the Lord bless us with intimacy if we are not doing what He
commanded? Why would we expect answer to our own prayers when we are disobedient to His command? Don’t say that we are
unable to tell others of the Christ! Jesus prayed that we would do so; and if the Master asked something, the Father does it! You
may recall that Martha confessed when she was pleading that Jesus would raise her brother, Lazarus, “I know that whatever you
ask from God, God will give you” [JOHN 11:22]. Then, as He prayed before Lazarus’ tomb, The Master confessed to the Father,
“I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me”
[JOHN 11:42].

Without apology, I am labouring to see people saved. I’m working hard to see people set free from sin and brought into the
Kingdom of God. Salvation is granted when a lost person turns to the Saviour, asking Him to assume the rule over life and save
them. This is my prayer for you, if you are one of those individuals who is now under divine sentence. If you would be set free
from condemnation and be accepted into God’s Family, heed the call of the Master. Believe that Jesus, the Son of God, died
because of your sin and that He rose from the dead. Believing that He now lives and that He receives all who come to Him in faith,
ask Him to receive you and to take control over your life. The Living God has promised; He will do what He has promised. Believe
Him today. Amen.  Let us Pray ......
