John 17:1-17

In John 17, we come to the prayer of Jesus Christ for His people. This is the longest prayer in the Bible. Christ prays to the Father, then He prays for his disciples, and then He prays for those who are lost. In John 17:16 Jesus said, “Father the hour is come”. Jesus was about to be scarified for the sins of the world.

I.The Lords heart is the Salvation of mankind (2-3)

·         John 3:16

·         Luke 19:10

·         Jesus desire is for every man, women and child to know eternal life.

·         Vs 3, That they may know”

·         Every person can know their saved.

·         Ch Spurgeon said, God may know, but I don’t know, so I am going to tell everyone.

A.      Eternal life comes through Christ – 3b “Jesus Christ in whom thou sent”

·         Eternal life comes from God

·         We must come to the Father through Christ; him alone!

·         Jesus wants all Christians to have assurance.

B.      Eternal security for all believers - John 17:11 and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me,

·         At salvation, we are placed into the hand of God.

·         God keeps you.

·         John 10:29

·         No one can remove you from Gods Hand.

!!II. The Lords Heart is [that we would possess the scriptures]  - John 17:8  For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me

·         After salvation you want to read your Bible.

·         Every word of the Bible is divinely inspired by God the Holy Spirit

·         2 Tim 3:16

·         Are we thankful for the Bible?

·         Battles can be won using the Bible.

·         Jesus did not leave you alone.

·         Jesus left the Holy Spirit and the Bible

·         John 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:

·         Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

A.     We need to preach the Word – 2 Timothy 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

·         A preacher must preach – this means to stand up and declare it with authority.

·         Those who do not like preaching usually have sin in their life.

B.     We need to study the Bible 1 Peter 2:2  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

·         Reading the Bible makes one grow spiritually.

C.     We need to Obey the Bible – James 1:22 but be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

III. Gods Heart is for our sanctification- John 17:15

·         Jesus asked, “to protect us from evil”

·         We live in days that re evil.

·         Abstain from all appearance of evil 1 Thes. 5:17

·         Vs. 16-17 the word sanctify means to set apart, or to make one holy.
