John 17 (pt 2)

Always pointing to the Father,

The Son prepares for departure,

His followers as yet oblivious to the coming storm.

They know, more than they realise,

That all is all, is all.

We become part of this gift,

Wrapped in the beauty of faith,

And sealed tightly with the Spirit’s kiss.

In the name that was given,

We stand protected,

As the winds lash our awareness and being.

And we remain safe,

Even when sanctuary is unseen,

Because we belong.

.

“I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.” [John 17:6-12]
