We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.
We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING. Today’s topic? PRAYER.
Jesus had lots to say not his subject:
We’re taking a deeeeep dive into this rather provocative question: Who did Jesus say he is?
In his very first words recorded in the Bible, Jesus made it clear that he’s God’s son. We’ve been exploring exactly what he meant by that over the past few days.
Today, we’ll look at a prayer he prayed for his disciples and — get this — you and me. Wow.
Bask in each and every word:
We’re attempting to answer the question What exactly are Christians supposed to do? by looking at 50 commands straight from the mouth of Jesus.
We kicked things off with Jesus’ Big 2. He said there are no commands greater than these:
- Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
(Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-34)
Jesus’ other commands show what it reeeeeally means to love God and others. Here’s today’s featured command: PRAY!
What’s the last thing Jesus did before he headed to the garden to be arrested?
He prayed for his disciples — and then, get this: he prayed for you and me.
Here is his prayer in its entirety. Far too few humans have actually read through it in one sitting. Don’t be one of them. Pray through every word right now. Please.
